Nairobi, Kenya — 28 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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Sigona Golf Club (in Kikuyu), Machakos (Maanzoni Sanctuary & Machakos People's Park) and Karunguru Coffee Estate (in Ruiru). Spend the 2nd (Mon) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 10th (Tue) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and take an exotic tour of a safari tour.

To see photos, where to stay, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Nairobi trip planner.

Zurich, Switzerland to Nairobi is an approximately 14-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Zurich to Nairobi, you'll lose 2 hours due to the time zone difference.

City of Light

Founded when gold was discovered in the area in the late 19th century, Johannesburg quickly grew into a bustling metropolis, South Africa's largest city and the region's economic hub.

Pack the 5th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Gold Reef City. Spend the 14th (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Apartheid Museum, try your luck at Montecasino, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ukutula Conservation Center, and steep yourself in history at Mandela House.
