Interesting facts about this location


Nairobi is the capital and largest city of Kenya. The city and its surrounding area also forms the Nairobi County.

However, it is popularly known as the "Green City in the Sun" and is surrounded by several expanding villa suburbs. Residents of Nairobi are known as Nairobians.
