The gateway to East Africa, Nairobi is a fantastic starting point for your safari vacation to Kenya

We recommend a stay to the Giraffe Manor Hotel for an incredible encounter feeding giraffes

Embark on an unforgettable trip to Nairobi, where luxury meets urban allure. Upon arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (NBO), our Wayfairer 'meet and assist' service ensures a seamless transition through immigration, customs and baggage collection into opulence. With a private car and driver at your disposal, immerse yourself in the city's vibrant culture and cuisine or relax in your Nairobi luxury hotel.

Discover Nairobi National Park, where skyscrapers form a stunning backdrop to encounters with lions, giraffes, cheetahs, hyenas, leopards and even the endangered black rhino just minutes from the city centre. One of the best things to do in Nairobi is to visit the Giraffe Centre, where you'll experience intimate encounters with endangered Rothschild Giraffes. This is a unique conservation effort within the city limits.

Step into history at the Karen Blixen Museum, the former home of the author of 'Out of Africa,' and lose yourself in its captivating exhibitions. Whether you linger at the onset or conclusion of your luxury safari trip to Kenya, each moment in Nairobi is adorned with sophistication and splendour.
