Nairobi Guidelines

Learn basic Swahili words

Most people in Nairobi speak English. However, some local words are such a fabric of the language that Nairobians assume that they’re part of the English language and that you know them. To avoid miscommunication, learn some basic words like sawa (okay), kesho (tomorrow) asante (thank you), Karibu (welcome) and sasa (hello). They’re usually thrown around casually in conversations so don’t panic.
