Nairobi, Kenya

— 16 nights

Green City in the Sun

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.
Step out of Nairobi to go to Maai Mahiu and see Mount Longonot, which is approximately 1h 50 min away. Spend the 2nd (Fri) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 6th (Tue) exploring nature at Central Island National Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, look for gifts at Matbronze Wildlife Art, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and trek along Ngong Hills.
