Our tips for Nairobi

  • Carry a scarf: It’ll be a good idea to pack a scarf among your baggage. Not only are they good for staying warm or if you’re visiting a place that needs more modesty. Also, if it does get hot, dip it in water and wrap it around your neck to cool down. Perfect.
  • Look out for the Nairobi Bump: This is when someone bumps into you in the street, accidentally! They will apologise but will have also lifted your wallet or phone. Keep your wits about you.

Good to know

Best time to visit

You’re best to visit Nairobi during the dry season, that’s from late June to October. It’s the best time to view the wildlife when you head out to the reserves. And it’s good to know that with Nairobi’s elevation the year-round temperatures mean it’s often quite mild.

Getting around

Unless you are on an organised tour around the city, taxis are the most popular way for visitors to get about. You’ll find licensed taxis have a yellow stripe and are found on most street corners in the centre of the city. They will also be outside the popular tourist attractions.

Stay Safe

It’s a good idea to be aware of your surroundings when in Nairobi. The city is generally a safe place during the day, going alone to various places around the city at night is a no go. Stay in the tourist areas, keep your belongings in a safe place and enjoy.
