Car: Not Necessary

Car: recommended

• Nairobi National Park:

A safari tour in Nairobi National Park is a must when staying at Nairobi.

Nevertheless, you should not cheat yourself and miss a tour in the park and the chance for an up close look at the wildlife – including lion, giraffe, zebra, rhino, cheetah, ostrich and of course the Nyati – Swahili for buffalo.

• David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust:

This place is located at the Nairobi National Park and is a home for orphan baby elephants. Here you can see the baby elephants with their “mother”, a keeper who lives together with his orphan 24 hours a day.

• Langata Giraffe Centre:

The Langata Giraffe Centre is located on the edge of the Nairobi National Park. The Giraffe Centre is a sanctuary for the rare Rothschild’s giraffe. Here you can observe, hand-feed or even kiss the giraffes.

• Karen Blixen Museum:

Only about 15 kilometres from Nairobi you will find the Karen Blixen Museum.

Especially people from Denmark visit the place and house where the famous Danish author lived until 1931. The place became even more known after the film Out of Africa with Meryl Streep and Robert Redford.

The museum is one of the most popular sights in Nairobi. From the garden you can admire the wonderful view of Ngong Hills.

• Kitengela Glass:

Experience the coloured glass art at Kitengela Glass.

Kitengela Glass is located opposite the Nairobi National Park. The owners of Kitengela Glass are also the founders and trustees at the Rudolf Steiner School Mbagathi. They have worked for and supported the school for many years.

The wildlife of the Masai Mara is extensive. Here you will find the so-called ‘Big Five’ of Kenya – buffalos, elephants, leopards, lions and rhinos – along with the Maasai people, whose pastoral lifestyle and colourful garb and culture have made them Kenya’s best known tribe.

The lake has become world famous for its hundreds and thousands of brilliant pink flamingos which visit the soda lake to feed. But Nakuru has more than just flamingos. This is a major National Park and an important sanctuary for both Black and White Rhino.

The lake is located about 170 kilometres north east of Nairobi at an elevation of 1,754 m above sea level.

About the owner: I grew up in Nairobi, attended St John's Seminary School, where I planned to become a priest, but later changed my mind.

I currently reside in Allentown PA USA with my wife and daughter. I purchased this penthouse as a vacation property where me and my family stay while in Nairobi. We have spared no expense to make it as comfy as possible for my family and hopefully your family will enjoy it too!
