Nairobi is known as the safari capital of Africa and with good reason. Surrounding the city for dozens of miles in every direction is the Nairobi National Park where all of the famous safari animals can be seen in the wild and also in sanctuaries which often look after young animals orphaned by hunters.

Hire a car to get to an adventurous day out on the Tana River which offers white knuckle raft rides down as far as 14 Falls which, as the name says, is a series of beautiful waterfalls that cascade into the valley below.
