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 Mount Longonot (in Maai Mahiu), Machakos (Maanzoni Sanctuary & Machakos People's Park) and The Forest (in Kimende Town). 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: get outside with Outdoor Activities, admire the landmark architecture of African Heritage House, tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, and see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour.

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