Nairobi offers a winning combination of world-class hospitality, breathtaking natural attractions, and sporting facilities that make it perfect for hosting global tournaments like the Magical Kenya Open.

I enjoyed the fantastic course, and this was a chance to relax and experience Safari wildlife in their natural habitat. I love the weather here and the people are very welcoming. He spoke.
