Sun, Sea, and Skylines: Kenya’s Rich Tapestry


Along the coast, which holds some of the finest beaches in Africa, Famed for its scenic landscape and massive wildlife reserve, plus its variety of animal species.

Finding a comfortable place to rest is important. Here are a few places where you can find that comfort:

1. Weston Hotel

The hotel is elegantly designed to ease the pressures of life and promote ultimate comfort. It boasts the best views of the breathtaking Nairobi National Park and the Ngong Hills in the backdrop. It is only a 5-minute drive from the Central Business District and 15 minutes from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Spacious and airy reception, along with comfortable stylish seats, magnificent flowers, sophisticated style, and luxurious finishes, will definitely make your stay memorable.

2. Giraffe Manor

Situated next to Nairobi’s Giraffe Centre, the manor is in an exceptional location for interacting with Kenya’s wildlife. The international airport is 19 miles away, or Wilson Airport, where many tourists fly in and out on safari, is eight miles away. Set in 140 acres of indigenous forest, the house and grounds are simply beautiful. Built in 1932 as a house for Sir David Duncan, it retains the design and feel of its former days, you feel like you are staying in a friend’s house. During the day, you can sit outside watching butterflies flutter through the trees. In the evening, recline in the lounge in front of a grand fireplace, reading a book or playing chess.

3.The Panari Hotel

The Panari Hotel Nairobi offers a five-star, luxurious, and comfortable space to relax, unwind, rejuvenate in an ideal location that is conveniently 10 minutes away from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport Nairobi. The Hotel exudes tranquility in exquisite surroundings and creates a warm feeling of unpretentious luxury.

Kenya is home to some of the rarest and most interesting species of wildlife in the world.

4. Maasai Mara National Reserve

The annual wildebeest migration is best observed at the Maasai Mara National Reserve, which also includes a Maasai village. This is probably the leading safari destination in Kenya and is regarded as the jewel of wildlife viewing. Its animals include lions, cheetahs, elephants, zebras, and hippos. Wildebeest traverse its plains during their annual migration. The landscape has grassy plains, rolling hills and is crossed by the Mara & Talek rivers.

5. Nairobi National Park

Nairobi National Park is the main tourist attraction for visitors. Visitor attractions include the park’s diverse bird species, cheetahs, hyenas, leopards, and lions. Other attractions are the wildebeest and zebra migrations in July, August, the Ivory Burning Site Monument, the Nairobi Safari Walk and animal orphanage. The park’s Wildlife Conservation Education Centre offers lectures and video shows about wildlife, guided tours of the park and animal orphanage. These tours are primarily, but not exclusively, to educate schools and local communities.

6. K’Osewe Ranalo Foods

Locals and tourists agree that K’Osewe Ranalo Foods is the best restaurant in Nairobi city center for traditional dishes and live music. It is also one of the top places to eat in Nairobi to have a local food experience after a day of city sightseeing. You can try out their goat meat, tilapia fish, or wet beef served with ugali and kachumbari. After eating, I recommend staying a little longer to enjoy a few Tusker beers while listening to a live band.
