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.
We share a lot of resources and local suggestions in today’s podcast, but you should also check out the Kenya Tourism Board, the local visitor’s bureau. They are a wealth of information and can help you plan an itinerary based on your time, budget, and interests.
