Escape to a unique oasis, while still being within easy reach of Nairobi’s city center, at Sovereign Suites.
The largest city in the country, Nairobi is a dynamic metropolis, with a culture that is rapidly evolving to include a diverse food scene and energetic nightlife, among other attractions. Take time to discover the rich history of the city, which was the former capital of British East Africa, and visit the Thorn Tree Café in the Central Business district to get a taste of these English roots. The Nairobi National Museum, Nairobi Gallery, and US Embassy Memorial Site are a few additional points of interest, or you can visit the Karen Blixen Museum, based on the author’s famous “Out of Africa” book. With everything from raw oysters to ostrich steaks, the adventurous eater will love the city’s many off-the-beaten-path dining outposts, where an incredibly wide array of ingredients are offered. Also be sure not to miss Nairobi National Park, where you can adventure on a legitimate African safari while still in view of the city’s towering skyline. Return from your day’s diversions to Sovereign Suites, and make your time in Nairobi a distinctively delightful experience.
