Nairobi is the capital and largest city of Kenya. The word Nairobi is derived from the Masai phrase "Enkare Nyirobi", which means the "the place of cool waters". The city lies along the banks of the River Nairobi, and is also popularly known as the "Green City in the Sun". Founded as a simple rail depot at the end of the 19th century, the city has grown to be one of the largest cities on the continent.

So, take a safari and check out all manner of wildlife, visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage (also keeps Rhinos), observe the tall gangly creatures at the Giraffe Centre, and educate yourself at the Nairobi National Museum, National Railway Museum, and Bomas of Kenya.
