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.
Bring the kids along to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Giraffe Centre. Spend the 19th (Thu) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's still lots to do: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Nairobi National Park, see the interesting displays at Karen Blixen Museum, admire the striking features of African Heritage House, and stop by Ocean Sole (Flip the Flop).

For reviews, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Nairobi driving holiday tool .
