Nairobi, Kenya

— 31 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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Karura Forest and Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages. Explore Nairobi's surroundings by going to The Forest (in Kimende Town), Mount Longonot (in Maai Mahiu) and Machakos (Maanzoni Sanctuary & Machakos People's Park). Spend the 2nd (Sat) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 14th (Thu) exploring nature at Central Island National Park. Next up on the itinerary: take a memorable tour with Tours, examine the collection at Nairobi National Museum, see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

For where to stay, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Nairobi trip planning app.
