Nairobi is definitely an interesting city to visit with some cool sights to see. I found the downtown a bit crowded with pedestrians and vehicles, but parts of the town have some cool things to see. The Carnivore is definitely a great dining experience with meat being carved from swords. I've had croc, impala, ostrich, and camel at the Carnivore. I highly recommend the ostrich. I don't eat the bread or salad because you can get that anywhere. My favorite place in Kenya is actually Amboseli National Park on the Tanzanian border.

Yes, Nairobi downtown is soooo crowded and busy and motorists do not really pay much attention to pedestrians or traffic lights but all in all its a wonderful place(that is home for me so I am used to the busy city life)The only thing I cant do is drive when I go back to Kenya because one has to be very tough to handle those matatu motorists.I have not been to Amboseli but I will definitely go soon!
