Fairmont The Norfolk

Discover Fairmont The Norfolk

A beloved landmark dating back to 1904, Fairmont The Norfolk has played a pivotal role in Kenya’s historical legacy notably as the town and later the modern city of Nairobi grew around the property. A hidden gem with alluring old-world charm and elegant contemporary design, Fairmont The Norfolk offers guests a sophisticated retreat in the city with easy access to key business districts of Gigiri, Westlands, and Upper hill in addition to leisure hubs and the bourgeoning Nairobi art scene.


The hotel boasts 27 luxurious suites and 143 rooms set around tranquil tropical gardens, a heated outdoor swimming pool, and a health club with a fitness center and indulgent spa facilities. The rooms combine classic elegance and modern design with discreet technology. Many rooms offer breathtaking elevated views of the landscaped courtyard, while the signature suites are an excellent choice for guests seeking to experience luxury intertwined with the rich history of the city.

Indulge yourself


All of Nairobi is ours to explore! Perhaps we’ll visit Kenya’s foremost animal orphanage and conservation foundation, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. For more than four decades Dame Daphne Sheldrick was a recognized authority on successfully raising infant elephant and rhinoceros orphans and re-integrating them into the wild. Watch the babies feed and play while learning about them from the late Dame Daphne’s staff.

Karen Von Blixen’s home—the Danish author of Out of Africa—is nigh obligatory, paying tribute to the woman who nearly single-handedly inspired a generation of safari travelers. The home remains a perfect architectural gem with much of her original furniture recovered, and a visit will surely put you in the proper frame of mind for launching an excursion into the bush.

Then there’s the Giraffe Centre, set on 120 acres of primeval forest. The Centre raises, and then releases, endangered Rothschild giraffes into the wild. Children and adults alike thrill to the treat of feeding these gentle giants by hand, facing them eye-to-eye from an elevated viewing platform
