Nairobi Hotels and Excursions

Gamewatchers Safaris can offer a choice of selected hotels and day trips in Nairobi, the capital of Kenya. The name “Nairobi” originates from the Maasai name ‘Ewaso Nairobi’ – translating as “The place of cold water”. Founded over 100 years ago as a rail depot on the line that linked Mombasa and Uganda, it quickly evolved to become the capital of British East Africa in 1907, and eventually the capital of the independent Republic of Kenya in 1963.

The city of Nairobi retains its sense of the past, with an excellent museum and historical home of Karen Blixen, author of “Out of Africa”. Kenya’s capital is unique in having a national park within a few miles of the city centre where lions, rhinos and other African wildlife can be seen by visitors.
