Nairobi the third best tourist destinationTripAdvisor has ranked Nairobi as the top tourist destination in the Africa and third best in the world.

 
Nairobi has been described as an “energetic, modern city that serves as a fascinating introduction to both wildlife and nightlife.”Among the top destinations frequented by tourists in Nairobi are the Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Centre and Nairobi National Park.

 
Damaris Rotich, a senior curator at the Karen Blixen Museum said that the reason for Nairobi’s global attraction and success is the history behind Karen Blixen herself.

 
Karen, a famous Danish author, was not only nominated twice for the Nobel Peace Prize, but was also well known for the books she wrote. She published a total of nine books, and among them, one was picked up and turned into the famous Oscar award winning movie that is, Out of Africa.

 
Just 25 minutes away from the Museum is the Nairobi National Park. Nairobi is the only capital in the world with a National Park within the city.

 
But it’s not just wildlife and museums that seem to make Nairobi attractive for the visitors.
TripAdvisor describes Nairobi as a city where “music clubs pulse with life, shops and markets bustle and a mélange of restaurants will tempt your palate.”

 
Dr. Betty Addero Radier, the Chief Executive Office of the Kenya Tourism Board said that a lot is currently being done to improve the tourism industry in the city this year. This year, the Kenya tourism industry is expected to grow remarkably.
