Families would be hard-pressed to find a more memorable place to stay than Giraffe Manor. Located in the leafy suburb of Langata, about a 30-minute drive from central Nairobi, the 1932 family home of a former candy baron was modeled on a Scottish...

Slip Rd, Nairobi, Kenya
The Maasai Market is an excellent spot to get all kinds of handmade crafts, jewelry, beads, woodwork, and art in the middle of Nairobi. My favorite items were the stacks of fabrics with Maasai prints, plaids, and Barack Obama screens. At this...

Naivasha, Kenya
This new tented eco-camp just opened on the shores of Lake Naivasha. It has 16 luxury tented camps and 5 bungalows. I've stayed here several times and marvel at the level of service, the quality of the food, and the location. Boat rides on Lake...

Woodvale Grove, Nairobi, Kenya
Well-known to locals and high-end business travelers, the Sankara is Nairobi’s most posh hotel in the hip neighborhood of Westlands. Not commonly used by safari tour companies, I recommend a stopover here for a real taste of the city in a central...

If you desire to visit Kenya for whatever reason, you must know that it is not easy. This is why my experience, though, was in a word amazing. From walking miles to go swimming and running into several naked children wanting to play to stopping...

Mbagathi Ridge, Nairobi, Kenya
Hemingways is a new hotel in Karen, which is sort of the equivalent of Atlanta's Buckhead in Nairobi. It is near the Wilson airport, where so many of the domestic Kenya flights fly out. Traffic is a huge issue in Nairobi and cars creep both by day...

Lake Naivasha, Kenya
As you approach Lake Naivasha from Nairobi, the one-lane, potholed road rises and you are suddenly treated to a truly awesome view of the Great Rift Valley stretching out to the horizon. Shimmering within that...

Muindi Mbingu St, Nairobi, Kenya
The city market in downtown Nairobi is a gem. First comes the flower vendor, then the various local eateries where you can get a heaping plate of grilled meats for nearly nothing, and then you stumble through the indoor maze of woodcarvings, bone...

The Wildebeest Eco Camp in Langansta (a suburb of Nairobi) is one of the most beautiful places I have ever stayed at. Alex and his wife have created an eco conscious permanent camp for all budgets on 2.5 acres. You can camp (with their tent or...
