Kenyatta International Conference Centre
kenya's Capital City began life as a shanty town around the railhead established by the builders of the famous Kenya - Uganda Railway in 1899. The first residents of this area were the Masai who watered their cattle herds here and reffered to the uninhabited swampland as "Enkare Nyrobi" meaning the "place of cool water".

They were followed by Sergeant George Ellis who built stables and an office here. Huts began to grow around the railhead and ten months after the railhead was established the British Consulate General based in Zanzibar gave it townshipstatus on 16 April 1900. By 1907, Nairobi was the capital of all British East Africa, an important centre for the colony and a "Mecca" for adventurers, hunters and travellers from all over the world.
