Fly into Nairobi, Kenya’s capital city, and experience an urban gem, with abundance of culture, nightlife, shopping and incredible National Parks, all in the heart of the city centre. Brightsun Travel has cheap holidays to Nairobi, featuring stays at some of the city’s best hotels, placing you at the heart of the action in Nairobi. Stay in downtown Nairobi, and you could experience luxury accommodation surrounded by restaurants, bars and clubs, where you can listen to ‘Afro pop’ in late night venues, and sip inventive cocktails in cool new lounges. During the day, Nairobi is a shopper’s paradise, with a range of malls, high end boutiques and exotic markets to discover, like The Village Market Mall, where you can pick up some seriously good souvenirs. And you don’t have to leave the city centre to go on a safari in Nairobi. Right in the middle of the city you will find the Karura Forest, a massive 2500 acres of forest with beautiful trees, ancient caves, screeching monkeys and hypnotic bird life.
And from the capital, you can go on a safari adventure of a lifetime. Just a 45 minute flight from the heart of the city is the famous Maasai Mara Nature Reserve, home to the highest concentration of lions in the world, plus giraffes, rhino and elephant. And just 150 kilometres from the city is another of East Africa’s highlights – Mount Kenya - Africa’s second highest mountain. Here you will find biodiverse forests and soaring mountains that attract walkers and climbers alike from around the globe. There are several walking trails around the mountain that will take you past tribal villages, and through Mount Kenya National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Another popular hiking spot close to Nairobi is Mount Longonot National Park, a dormant volcano located in the Rift Valley, dating back millions of years, which is now alive with hundreds of flamingos, wild elephants and big cats.
