Nairobi, Kenya

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.
Escape the urban bustle at Safaris and Photography Tours. Popular historic sites such as Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages and Jamia Mosque are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Nairobi side-trips: Mount Longonot (in Maai Mahiu), Machakos (Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park & Machakos People's Park) and The Reserve at Rimpa Estates Wildlife Conservancy (in Kiserian). Spend the 24th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 28th (Sat) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. The adventure continues: explore the landscape on two wheels at Karura Forest, explore the striking landscape of Central Island National Park, see the interesting displays at Karen Blixen Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Grotto Beach, take some stellar pictures from Cape Point, tour the pleasant surroundings at Stony Point Penguin Colony, and learn about winemaking at Saronsberg Wine Cellar.
