When you’re planning a trip to Kenya’s capital make sure to include our Nairobi car hire services in your plan so that your trip there is as pleasant as possible. With a population of around four million people, Nairobi is not only the largest and fastest growing city in the country but it is also one of the largest on the continent.
The city is served by the Nairobi Airport called Jomo Kenyatta Airport which is located about fifteen kilometers southeast of the city’s center and is connected to the city via taxis. However a better choice would be to employ our Nairobi car hire services and have a car ready for you at the airport so that you can start driving towards your destination almost as soon as you land.
Getting around the city with the help our car rental services is definitely something that you can do but you have to keep in mind that just like in any other major city on the planet traffic can tend to become rather bad at certain times of the day; you have the option of either driving for yourself or you use our chauffeur services and have a driver who is accustomed to the Nairobi traffic.
Once in Nairobi you’ll find out why the city is considered to be the safari capital of Africa. While the city itself is rather modern it is surrounded by 113 square kilometers of untouched wilderness which makes up the Nairobi National Park. The Park is a unique place where you can see large numbers of zebras, giraffes, lions, wildebeests and many other wild African animals. The Park also has an educational center called the Nairobi Safari Walk which is meant to raise awareness about wildlife and habitat conservations.
Close to the Nairobi National Park you can visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, a place that takes in elephant and rhino calves from all over the country which were orphaned due to poaching.
The Giraffe Center on the other hand actually breeds endangered Rothschild Giraffe and offers conservation and education programs to Kenyan children.
These are of course only a few of the many interesting and wild things that you can see while on your trip to Kenya’s capital, and you can see many more with the help of our Nairobi car hire services.
