Nairobi promoting walking tours in bid to shed “Nairobbery” image

The nickname “Nairobbery” does little to help the image of Kenya’s unruly capital. That could be changing. The region is witnessing rising visitor numbers, driven heavily by the increased spending power and travel habits of Africa’s growing middle class. On May 26, Nairobi visitors enjoyed the city’s first historical walking tours; two-hour trips that visit the 1950s parliament buildings, Khoja Mosque and a bronze statue of Kenya’s founding president, Jomo Kenyatta, among other sites.
