I’m really excited to interview author Robert Belle about Nairobi, Kenya. Robert’s tips for the best things to do in Nairobi are awesome because he was born here but grew up in the Caribbean. He came back to get in touch with his roots and loves how the country offers a blend of multi-cultural and cosmopolitan people. Robert also enjoys how easy it is to experience the wildlife and nature just beyond the city limits.

Getting around Nairobi

The local airport is Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), which is a 20-minute drive to the city.

Robert says that, if you’re staying downtown, there’s no need to rent a car. For the best offers, visit Avis, Budget, or Hertz.
