Safari in the City: InterContinental Nairobi Frames Lions Against the City Skyline

August 26, 2009 By:Daniel L. Moses

Nairobi, KenyaNairobi, Kenya is the first major world city to boast its own National Park and game reserve. But Nairobi National Park isn't the only draw of this city of more than 1.5 million residents. With the East African Community creating a free trade zone amongst its member nations, Nairobi is as practical for the business traveler as it is for the safari trekker. Located in the middle of all this activity, is Nairobi's own InterContinental Hotel. Newly renovated in 2007, the long time pillar amongst Nairobi’s lodgings is now taking its place among the elite hotels on the continent. The multi-lingual staff is known for their attention to detail, and delicately cares for the nearly 400 rooms. And for that trip to the Nairobi National Park, they can take care of that too, on arrival or in advance. They might not guarantee a sighting of the elusive black rhino, but they can certainly guarantee a relaxing, comfortable experience throughout. Check out the InterContinental Nairobi's luxury safari packages when booking your African vacation.
