The altitude of Kenya's capital, Nairobi, ensures that the climate is comfortable here all year long. The modern Kenyatta International Conference Center and Nairobi's attractive appearance have made the city into an important international business and conference location. The Nairobi National Park is just 8 km away from the city. Today Kenya's oldest national park still looks like it did in old photographs: softly rolling grasslands where elephants and all of the other types of wild East African animals graze on the plain. The rich biodiversity of the flora and fauna has made Kenya's national parks famous throughout the world. There are many places for visitors to book safaris. And balloon rides are becoming more and more popular. They offer the unique experience of observing wild animals from a bird's eye view.
