You're likely to visit Nairobi at least once on a trip to Kenya, as the sprawling city houses the country's international airport and remains the jump-off point for many tours and safaris.
Spend the 22nd (Sat) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 23rd (Sun) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. And it doesn't end there: stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, have some family-friendly fun at GP Karting, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and admire the landmark architecture of African Heritage House.

To see ratings, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Nairobi trip planner.

Amsterdam, The Netherlands to Nairobi is an approximately 12-hour flight. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Amsterdam to Nairobi due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Amsterdam in June since evenings lows in Nairobi dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Sun) early enough to drive to Tsavo National Park East.
