Kenya's equatorial location ensures warm weather year round, though it can be cool at night and first thing in the morning. There are two rain seasons, the long rains occur from late March to early June and short rains from October to December. The rainfall is sometimes heavy and when it does come it often falls in the afternoons and evenings. The hottest period is from February to March and coldest in July to August.

The name of this capital and largest city of Kenya comes from the Maasai phrase meaning "the place of cool waters". Both Mount Kenya to the north and Mount Kilimanjaro to the south east are visible from Nairobi on a clear day. Many 20th century novels have been set in Nairobi, the most famous undoubtedly 'Out of Africa', written by Karen Blixen as her account of living in Kenya in the early 20th century. The film won 7 Academy Awards and its popularity prompted the opening of Nairobi's Karen Blixen Museum.

Lauren Lees has been wonderful to work with, responsive, informative, and put together a great itinerary. I could not be more pleased, except if she was also our guide. I am sure she would have been fantastic.
