On the way there we flew through Lusaka and Nairobi, going a little bit out of the way. Flying back we stayed a day in Nairobi. It happened to be on Madaraka Day, a holiday in Kenya celebrating when they first obtained autonomy from Britain.
Our hotel was cool, I had a huge room. I’m not sure how anyone could use all that space. One of the IT guys from Moshi showed us some of the night life there as well.
While we worked most of the time while we were in Moshi, we did get some gorgeous views of Kilimanjaro through the clouds and from the plane:
We also were able to swing through Nairobi National Park while we were staying there. While it’s partially surrounded by Nairobi, it’s huge. You certainly don’t feel like you’re in a city while you’re driving around inside. There were a fair amount of wild animals inside – its not anything like a zoo, the animals weren’t brought there for the park, they were there from the get go.
The city of Nairobi was interesting in and of itself as well. It definitely had more to offer than anywhere else I visited in Africa.
All in all, it was a good trip. Would have been better if my luggage hadn’t got lost but, that’s life.
