Hi, I am visiting Kenya among two other EA countries in September of this year. In light of the recent terror threats, I was hoping people could suggest a relatively safe option for stay in Nairobi.
I will be staying in Nairobi for one night upon arrival lateish afternoon then on to Lake Nakuru the following day, Masai Mara, Amboseli etc from there. And then again another overnight stay in Nairobi between travel. My travel operator has us booked in to stay at the Sarova Stanley in the CBD but am wondering whether Karen or a similar suburb could be a better option, rather then right in the middle of the city which is closer to Eastleigh. Open to any suggestions on where to stay with good security. And roughly how long does it take from Jomo Kenyatta Airport to Karen if you don't mind me asking. Appreciate any suggestions. Thanks !
