Change things up with a short trip to The Reserve at Rimpa Estates Wildlife Conservancy in Kiserian (about 52 minutes away). Make the 7th (Thu) a memorable day with a climbing tour. There's much more to do: look for gifts at Anselm's Kitengela Hot Glass, stroll through Giraffe Centre, view the masterpieces at Nairobi Gallery, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.
