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 off the beaten path and head to Off-Road Tours and Safaris. Change things up with these side-trips from Nairobi: Naivasha (Crescent Island Game Park & Enashipai Maa Museum), Mount Longonot (in Maai Mahiu) and Machakos (Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park, Maanzoni Sanctuary, &more). And it doesn't end there: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour, trek along Ngong Hills, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Giraffe Centre.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, use the Nairobi road trip planning website .
