LGBT Travellers

Homosexual acts are illegal in Kenya, and Nairobi is not the place to come out of the closet. There are no openly gay venues in Nairobi – as recently as 2014, around 40 people were arrested at a Nairobi nightclub for 'suspected homosexuality' – and nor will hotels look favourably upon single-sex couples sharing a bed, although two women are less likely to encounter difficulties in this regard than two men. As so often in Africa, discretion is the key.
