WHERE TO STAY IN NAIROBI
At the Tier 1 rating, Hemingways Nairobi is a 45-room hotel that features plantation-style architecture, luxurious boutique rooms and superb Michelin-star dining while outside you have a vast landscape of lush greenery and views of the Ngong Hills. House of Waine, also a Tier 1 accommodation, is a native family-owned and operated 11-room luxury guesthouse that is set on 2.5 acres of gardens.
The décor of the themed rooms is inspired by local cultures, and the meals are prepared with fresh local ingredients. To enjoy the playful antics of Rothschild giraffe, a stay at Giraffe Manor, a Tier 1 accommodation, allows you to interact with and feed giraffe from the dining room, your private balcony, guest room window and even your comfortable bed.
Karen Blixen Cottages, once the home of the Danish author who wrote “Out of Africa,” is a Tier 2 lodging with 12 traditional cottages set within beautiful gardens. The main house on the property was built in 1908 and used as a hunting lodge and farmhouse, and the charm of the historic setting is maintained in many of the design elements found within the cottages.
Other Tier 2 accommodations in Nairobi are Fairmont the Norfolk, featuring colonial architecture, modern amenities and 170 guest rooms, and Nairobi Serena, offering 184 rooms and suites.

AfricanMecca's professionalism and care understands that what distinguishes Africa is its authenticity, the land, people and wildlife who do not share our world of fashion and fanfare that distinguish so many travel companies today.
