Focus on Kenya

A sample of Nairobi's flavours

Nairobi's Ranalo foods joint, situated along Kimathi Street, next to the Nation Centre is Nairobi's bustling food joint. Also known as Kosewe, after its proprietor, Ronald Osewe, Ranalo foods is a perfect way to say goodbye to Kenya's urban culture.

Nairobi River is a historic landmark in Nairobi.

The Nairobi River from which the Kenyan capital draws its name remains an important landmark in this city that has grown to be East Africa’s Commercial capital and one of Africa’s most important transport hubs. Meandering from north to south, the river serves as a natural boundary between the affluent west that includes the city centre and Eastlands where the larger population comprising the majority poor lives.

Nairobi’s Mausoleum

Visitors to Nairobi should take time off to view the mausoleum in the city centre where the remains of Kenya’s founding president, Mzee Jomo Kenyatta were interred at the parliament grounds.
