Nairobi, Kenya — 31 nights

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 Safaris. Explore Nairobi's surroundings by going to Machakos (Maanzoni Sanctuary & Machakos People's Park), The Forest (in Kimende Town) and Mount Longonot (in Maai Mahiu). Spend the 2nd (Sat) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 19th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's much more to do: get the lay of the land with Walking tours, tour the pleasant surroundings at Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, and browse the exhibits of Nairobi National Museum.
