About the club


The dazzling contemporary capital of Nairobi is a powerhouse of diverse cultures and creative energy. But this is no hermetically sealed metropolis – the true wilds of Africa are quite literally on the doorstop in the shape of Nairobi National Park, just 7km from the city centre. 80 recorded species amid stunning scenery are a short journey from the city’s luxury hotels. 

The buzz of the city and the call of the wild in East Africa’s urban jungle.

Things to do


Within the boundaries of the beautiful Nairobi National Park you can see an array of wildlife from baboon to buffalo, leopard to lion. On the fringes of the park is the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, where visitors can get up close to rescued creatures before they’re rehabilitated and released back into the wild. Or head to Langata for the opportunity to see – and perhaps feed – the rare Rothschild giraffe.


Enjoy a delectable array of contemporary fine dining, often created using the best local artisan producers. Or sample exotic meats, from ostrich to crocodile. Venture into the heart of Nairobi to sample its thriving café culture.


Beyond the quiet haven of your luxury hotel is the beating heart of East Africa’s urban side. The National Museum is certainly worth a visit. Open since the 1920s but renovated in recent years, it’s packed with Kenya’s cultural highlights and anthropological discoveries. Or stop by the Karen Blixen Museum to learn about the Out of Africa author’s captivating life story. 

If you love traditional crafts, explore the Masai market. Here you can pick up hand-carved figurines of Kenya’s wildlife – but be ready to negotiate on price.
