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 Nature & Wildlife 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), The Reserve at Rimpa Estates Wildlife Conservancy (in Kiserian) and Machakos (Ol Donyo Sabuk National Park & Machakos People's Park). Spend the 28th (Sat) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 18th (Fri) behind the viewfinder with an inspiring photography tour. There's much more to do: grab your bike and head to Karura Forest, stroll through Giraffe Centre, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Central Island National Park.
