This is a must visit place for any person who would love to discover developed cities of Africa. Nairobi has become a world class city offering the visitor with many travel options.
What are the forms of transport available for visitors? Transport in this city usually varies from different levels of comfort. First there are the ‘matatus’ as referred to by the locals. These are always crowded and the levels of comfort are poor. They are also characterised by loud music. However some usually offer much organised services. For tourists, there are the coaches that will offer them with luxurious and comfortable transport services. The visitor also has the option of hiring a car as the car hire industry is very well defined in the city.
Then there are the tour firms that also give transport services to the traveller. The trains in the city are not very reliable as they are irregular. Incase you do not like any of these options then the cabs are there waiting for you.
What are the attraction sites in Nairobi? This city has many places that the tourist will spend days exploring. First there is the Nairobi national museum.
