One of the best places to discover Kenyan food is in the capital, Nairobi. Here, in the vibrant and ever-changing capital city, you’ll find all the essential dishes that visitors should try during a Kenya tour. If you’re a meat eater, be sure to try nyama choma - which is Swahili for roast beef. Ugali is a popular side dish to go with this - and the main staple of the Kenyan diet.

Although Kenya is famous as a safari destination and for its national parks, it also has a beautiful coastline along the Indian Ocean that is well worth visiting.
