The Times has recently released its list of the World’s Greatest places of 2022 – featuring none other than our capital Nairobi. The article deep dives into the elements that make Nairobi great – from the food to our wildlife.
Starting with our wildlife the Times listed Nairobi as the “safari capital of the world”, which is true with the city being the only one globally to house a national park. Only a couple of minutes from the central business district, CBD, you’ll find the Nairobi national park home to animals from lions to zebras and the African buffalo. This feature is a clear reason for the nation’s tourism levels – with projections by Kenya Airways of a busy summer period ahead.
The Times goes on to acknowledge a wide variety of reasons for its title for Nairobi as a “Cultural Metropolis” – including the renowned Eden Hotel Nairobi’s newest creative hub founded by designer Anna Trzebinski. Another core part of the city, the iconic Hilton made a notable mention in the article with its replacement Kwetu Nairobi by Hilton will be launching soon.
Another key aspect of change within the city is the remarkable new Express-Way, accumulating over $650+ million in costs. The Nairobi Express-Way has been a while in the making but is now open on a trial basis. This development will make the city’s congestion problem almost one of the past, by making it easier to access for residents and those travelling through Nairobi.
