Bruce Marais, a South African photographer, chef and creative who lives in Morocco, recently began a 10-country safari – through cities and along back roads and into game parks. His starting point was Nairobi, a city, he says, where he and his fellow travelers spent about $60 per person a day, including accommodation.

Visitors to the city’s Giraffe Centre, what Bruce calls a must-see for anyone coming to Nairobi. The money generated by the centre goes towards the conservation of the species.
