Nairobi Wheelchair Access Travel

Nairobi is the capital and the largest city of Kenya. The name comes from the Maasai phrase Enkare Nairobi, which translates to “cool water”, a reference to the Nairobi River which flows through the city. The city proper had a population of approximately 5 Million. Nairobi was founded in 1899 by the colonial authorities in British East Africa, as a rail depot on the Uganda Railway. The town quickly grew to replace Machakos as the capital of Kenya in 1907. After independence in 1963, Nairobi became the capital of the Republic of Kenya. Nairobi wheelchair access remains poor. Kenya is not a wealthy country, so disability travel is not as easy as it is in many first world nations that have much stronger standards requiring wheelchair access in new buildings.
