Dinner party tales of travels are even richer told by those who’ve taken time to explore the cities of the region.

It’s cities are not only the gateways to the open spaces, but are in themselves unique experiences, adding value to life, and providing the gravitas to participate as travellers as opposed to watching and seeing as tourists.

In Kenya, Nairobi the economic capital of the region, provides a number of experiences not to be missed including the national park on its doorstep, whilst the ‘coral island’ of Mombasa is at the heart of the beach goer’s needs.

Nairobi’s Wilson airport is the gateway to the Masai Mara, Tsavo east and Amboseli national parks. The cities of Nakuru and Marsabit play focal points depending on your final safari choices.
