Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya. The name comes from a masaai word Enkare Nyirobi, which means "the place of cool waters”. The city’s population is approximately 35 million people. The city is home to major international bodies such as the United Nations Environment Programme. The most exciting thing about Nairobi is its night life especially if you come from Europe and the U.S you would be happy to hear that there are no 2 am curfews. Here the party ends at 7am and there are clubs for literally everything. When you arrive just ask around for your preference and you will be sure to be directed in the right direction.
Other places of interest include the art galleries such as the Rahimtulla Museum of Modern Art and the Mzizi Arts Centre.
