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 with an excursion to Mount Longonot in Maai Mahiu--about 1h 50 min away. Spend the 2nd (Fri) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 13th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, take an exotic tour of a safari tour, explore the striking landscape of Central Island National Park, and examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum.

To find photos, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Nairobi attractions planning app .

Copenhagen, Denmark to Nairobi is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight.
