Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya and is 160 Kms (100 miles) from the equator.The name "Nairobi" comes from the Maasai phrase Enkare Nyirobi, which translates to "the place of cool waters". However, it is popularly known as the "Green City in the Sun" .Its principle landmark buildings, museum, game parks, hotels and resorts are a must see when you visit the city. It is possible to book a tour combining with airport transfer and drop you at the airport.

Off the Uhuru Highway turn right and to the left you have the Faculty of Engineering Department of our biggest Campus, the Nairobi University.

Enter Moi Avenue past the Old Salvation Army Building. Turn into Muindi Mbingu Street past Jivanjee Gardens on the left, and the City Market to the right. The City Market is housed in what was originally meant to be an aircraft hanger, but it was never used for this purpose. Instead, curios, crafts and farm produce are sold here. Drive down Banda Street past the largest Mosque in the country - the Jamia Mosque, and the McMillan Library built in pre-independent Kenya is our largest library. This is run by our City Council.
