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.
Kick off your visit on the 25th (Sat): have some family-friendly fun at GP Karting, tour the pleasant surroundings at Giraffe Centre, then see the interesting displays at Karen Blixen Museum, and finally stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the next day: look for gifts at Penny Winter Boutique and then explore the striking landscape of Nairobi National Park.

Plan my trip to Nairobi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Oslo, Norway to Nairobi is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Oslo to Nairobi is 2 hours. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Oslo in July since evenings lows in Nairobi dip to 16°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) early enough to travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve.
