The map of Nairobi as it appears in Mario is Missing!.
Luigi and Yoshi in Nairobi in the SNES version of Mario is Missing!.

Nairobi is the capital city of Kenya, Africa. Besides Rome, Beijing, Moscow and San Francisco, it is one of the five cities Luigi has to visit in Mario is Missing! in order to defeat Ludwig von Koopa. Like any city in the game, Nairobi is full of Koopa Troopas who have stolen artifacts from various places: the Nairobi National Park, a Maasai village, the National Museum of Kenya, and in the PC version, the Kenyatta Conference Center. Luigi's task is to collect these artifacts and return them to their respective places, proving the objects' authenticity by answering questions about them. When answering them correctly, he is allowed to visit the landmarks and take photographs of them. In order to finish securing the city, he has to ride Yoshi to the exit Warp Pipe which is blocked by a Pokey. Yoshi is able to scare the enemy away, clearing the way for leaving the city.
