    Photos of Africa & the Middle East


    Margate Country Club

    Beautiful 18 hole golf course offering great hospitality. Meet new friends and enjoy good meals. AJs Guesthouse guests receive discounted rates when playing golf here.

    Very fun club right at Wilson Airport. Lovely garden and the decor takes you back to colonial Africa times. There is also bar, gift shop and pool.


    African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (Kenya) Ltd. - Giraffe Centre

    There are heaps of giraffes at the centre, many of which were around and visibly feeding during our visit. It is an awesome experience to touch and feed a giraffe up close.


    A fascinating piece of History. Amazing work is being done in updating the old palace. It's nice to know that the entry fee is contributing to the improvement of this historical gem.


    Cheeta's rock is definitely a once in a lifetime experience. There aren't many places on earth where you can get close up with wild animals that aren't de-clawed and sedated. Cheeta's rock is one of them. It's obvious that the staff really care for these animals.


    Places To Eat

    Fogo Gaucho Churrascaria

    It's a good Brazilian style steakhouse, where you get various cuts of meats etc at your table. Service was good, and atmosphere was very relaxed.

    From the warm welcome at the door and attentive but not intrusive waiters to the excellent food, this must be the best Indian restaurant in Nairobi.


    I had a nice meal at this roof terrace restaurant. Simple and good food with great service. Looking out over the rooftops of town with the cool breeze, perfect.


    It has a great view, and the service is very good. Very relaxed atmosphere. It serves an excellent five course dinner every night, except Mondays, at 6.30 PM. Limited seats, so booking is essential.


    This is a beautiful restaurant. The decor is very chic and the view is unbeatable. The food is really very good with a wide range on the menu. The service is top notch and atmosphere is relaxed.


    Traveller Tips

    Explore Karura Forest

    Karura Forest is a great place to take a hike or ride a bike in Nairobi. Unlike the city, the forest is quiet and uncrowded.


    Get out to Nakupenda Beach

    Stunning beaches, turquoise sea and colored starfishes. You can take a private boat instead of an organized tour and pack your own picnic basket.


    Go hiking in the Udzungwa Mountains National Park

    There are many walks through the park but the best is the the hike to the Sanje Waterfall. It is fairly strenuous but well worth it. There are lots of birds and monkeys to see along the way.


    Visit Marrakech Souk

    A busy, noisy market located in the heart of the Medina. The stall owners will try and sell you everything, especially if you linger too long outside their stall. If you do want to buy then haggle (honestly they're disappointed if you don't!) Start with 30% of what they quote.


    Wander along Kokrobite Beach

    It's an hour by bus from Accra to this beautiful beach. There is a few restaurants, shops and a wee resort.


    Facts about Africa & the Middle East

    Quiet Sundays

    I found all shops are closed on Sundays unless they are situated at the V & A Waterfront or Canal Walk or Tyger Valley.
