17 reasons we should all probably go live in Nairobi

1. Nairobi National Park: it’s in the middle of the city, it’s 34 times bigger than New York's Central Park, and it has lions

2. There's a hotel where giraffes stick their heads in through the upstairs window at breakfast

It's called the Giraffe Manor, and you can book a trip right this very second here.

3. You can bottle-feed an orphaned baby elephant or even adopt one

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is the most successful orphaned-elephant rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. Check it out.

4. Hang out with the mixed crowd of cool kids while catching the best in East African music at the monthly ‘Blankets and Wine’ festival

5. Drink Tusker lager: the quintessentially Kenyan tipple and the only way to cool down after (or during) a hot day

6. ‘Nyama choma’ or roast meat, best served with a cold Tusker (see above) and eaten with your hands, and some friends

7. Brew Bistro, East Africa's only microbrewery, makes and serves homemade craft beers

The food’s not too shabby, either.

8. Rugby 7s: Kenya is a world-leader in this miniaturized version of one of the toughest team sports on the planet

Think American football, except you can’t throw the ball forward and there are no helmets or shoulder pads. The annual Safaricom 7s tournament is held every September.
