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 Nairobi War Cemetery are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Nairobi side-trips: Machakos (Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park & Machakos People's Park), Mount Longonot (in Maai Mahiu) 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, stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, see the interesting displays at Karen Blixen Museum, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Central Island National Park.
