Nairobi derives its name from the Maasai phrase “Enkare Nyirobi”, which translates to “the place of cool waters”. Being located on the Nairobi River, this city lives up to its name. The cool waters of the Nairobi and Tana rivers hydrate this capital of Kenya and provide unique opportunities for travelers like adventurous white water rafting.
With over three million citizens, Nairobi is also known as a central hub for economic activity, big business, and political significance. Even the United Nations office in Africa is located here along with its United Nations Environment Program. The Globalization and World Cities Study Group and Network has come to categorize Nairobi as a prominent social center.
