Perhaps one of the best ways to describe what it’s like to discover Africa through a hotel in Nairobi Kenya like the Southern Sun Mayfair Nairobi is to consider the comments from people who have holidayed in the area.
One amateur photographer describes a ‘Kenya safari holiday of a lifetime’ after spending a few days capturing ‘amazing wildlife and scenery on camera’. That was in the big-cat domain of the Masai Mara, which provides a home to great herds of zebra, wildebeest and buffalo too.
An essential contributor to the success of a safari is the guide. Find a good one who knows how to find the animals you want to see.
Guests at a hotel in Nairobi Kenya should visit Lake Nakuru, where countless flamingoes congregate to create breathtakingly beautiful, picture-postcard moments. Amboseli National Park is also worth seeing, not only for its wildlife, but the amazing views it affords of the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro.
You can venture away from your hotel in Nairobi Kenya to try some of the local cuisine. For no-frills, simple Kenyan fare like beef, fish, chicken and vegetables, one tourist recommends Ranalo Foods on Kimathi Street in Nairobi. It couldn’t be plainer. There are no menus or serviettes, you queue from the left to order, and pick your meal from a stack of cards. If there is no card, the meal item you want is sold out. This eatery’s offering is described by somebody from Jerusalem as: ‘Cheap and fun. Delicious.’
Meanwhile, a native-Californian living in Kenya’s Great Rift Valley rates Kenya as ‘the greatest place in East Africa for safari if you consider the diversity of the landscape and the ease with which you can move from one ecosystem to another. A good safari designer, who also guides, is a great way to let go of worries and savour one of this planet’s greatest journeys.’
Other curious tourists may be encouraged to book a room at a hotel in Nairobi Kenya after learning that a New Yorker fell head over heels in love with Nairobi and its people. That was partly attributable to a visit to the Giraffe Centre, which was established to protect the endangered Rothschild giraffe. It’s an incredible sanctuary that is slowly contributing to increasing the numbers of this fragile population. It’s only about 5km away from a central hotel in Nairobi Kenya and is a definite highlight of anyone’s holiday.
