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 discover tucked-away gems like Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Nairobi: 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 3rd (Tue) exploring nature at Dickson Mutaiti. Next up on the itinerary: take an exotic tour of a safari tour, grab your bike and head to Karura Forest, admire the landmark architecture of African Heritage House, and get outside with Outdoor Activities.

London, UK to Nairobi is an approximately 13-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Eastern African Time (EAT), which is usually a 3 hour difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from London in November, with highs in Nairobi at 28°C and lows at 19°C.
