Nairobi city has a lot of interesting things for the tourist to see. Hire a car and visit the memorial on the site of the American Embassy that was bombed by Al Qaeda in 1998. Whilst not quite as poignant as Ground Zero, over 200 people lost their lives here.

From the memorial, travel across town to the National Museum which has very informative and accessible displays on the history of the country. The museum itself is celebrating its 100th anniversary and so is part of the country’s history itself.
