Now It is Time To Go Africa With Kenya Airways!

Your life in a city can be really exhausting; especially if you live in London! The heavy traffic, the sound, the pollution; and yes your professional obligations! I too faced the problem while managing our home, as both my husband and myself were working professionals. We always had lesser time to spend with our8 year old son. Hence, it was decided to pack our bags and head for a vacation to Nairobi in Kenya.

The most apt carrier for a direct flight was the Kenya Airways in which we booked first-class tickets for the three of us.   Our son was more excited than us. He had only seen parts of Africa on the television with channels such as National Geography and Discovery.  Now he was going to see the same place and its surroundings with his own eyes. I was amused as I heard him inquire if there would be lions and rhinos at the airport!

A Comfortable Arrival At Kenya Before Beginning Our Family Trip

We checked into a 4 star hotel named the Hilton Hotel Nairobi, which was at a distance of 18 kilometers from the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Nevertheless, it took us just 25 minutes as the traffic in Nairobi was a blessing when compared to that of London. The Hilton Hotel; the brand-name says it all. There is no need to further describe how we had a relaxing stay before finalizing the spots to visit in Nairobi.

Spots That You Must Definitely Visit While You Are in Nairobi!

My husband asked a staff member at the reception of the hotel, of the best paces in Nairobi, which everyone in our family would enjoy.  The first name he suggested was the Nairobi National Park.  Our son got a special smile from the staff member, while the latter made this comment. It was a place where you could see wild animals in action. Well that’s Africa! Hence we selected a tourist guide on the discretion of the hotel and made our way into the Wilds of Africa.

  • Nairobi National Park: Located approximately 7 kms away from the city, the Nairobi National Park was quiet small in size compared to African standards. But this same size made it preferable for a family vacation like ours. There were lesser chances of getting lost or being exploited by the guide. We could easily get help.  The sanctuary mainly held herbivores such as rhinoceros.  Our son made a face in displeasure.
  • Uhuru Gardens: It took us an entire day at the wildlife sanctuary. After that we moved back to the Hilton Hotel Nairobi to explore places within the city itself. A place that caught our attention was the Uhuru Gardens. It is a large memorial public park that spoke a lot about the history of Kenya.
  • Nairobi National Museum:  If you speak about history, then you should definitely visit the museum, right? This place for me and my husband as the other two related more to our son’s interests. It features all the signs of the country’s heritage.

After a week, we all returned to London. This sure was a memorable trip and it was tremendously needed to get our minds away from the worries of city-life. At times, nature is the best home you can return to, for rejuvenating your mind, body and soul.
