Nairobi

Overview

Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya and is considered one of the most prominent cities in Africa, housing many multinational companies and organizations. Nairobi is a fine mixture of concrete and bush and lives up to its billing as the city in the sun. The tall building structures in the city center are surrounded by vegetation that adds to the beauty of this city. The surrounding areas are even greener, with the beautiful architecture of buildings hidden within lush semi-forest vegetation, adding to the freshness of the environment.
