This landmark Nairobi hotel was built in 1904 and continues to be one of East Africa’s most popular launching points for a high-end wildlife safari. A tranquil and sophisticated oasis in the heart of Kenya’s vibrant capital, Fairmont The Norfolk offers 170 luxury guestrooms furnished with marble bathrooms and every modern amenity a modern traveller could want.
Dining and drinking options at this venerable establishment include of course, Lord Delamere Terrace – once a haunt for the world’s rich and famous, a charming tea room, an American-style steakhouse and a handsome wine bar. As with any true five-star hotel, there’s 24-hour room service and pool-side beverages available. There is also a well-equipped fitness centre and day spa.
Fairmont The Norfolk is set on manicured gardens just 3km from the city centre, and close to the historic Nairobi Railway Station and key attractions such as the Karen Blixen Museum and Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.
