The country’s capital, Nairobi arose from humble beginnings as a shanty town depot of the East African Railway in 1899 to what it is today; a fast growing city composed of wide avenues bordered by jacaranda trees and skyscrapers. A truly cosmopolitan city, Nairobi’s multi-racial society comprises people of all creeds and colour.
Nairobi's cool weather conditions with little or no extremes are envied all over the world. There are many churches, mosques and temples where people of different faiths go to worship. There are restaurants, serving almost every kind of food, from local dishes to the most exotic. Nairobi is a major urban centre that boasts of having animal parks with all sorts of wildlife situated within a few miles from the city centre therefore making it a lucrative tourist attraction.
