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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages and Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. Get outdoors at Nairobi National Park and David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Spend the 1st (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Central Island National Park. There's much more to do: examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, work some fitness into your day at Karura Forest, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Nairobi War Cemetery.

If you are flying in from Cameroon, the closest major airport is Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 32°C in March, and nighttime lows around 20°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
