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.
Spend the 7th (Sun) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 9th (Tue) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Giraffe Centre, see the interesting displays at Karen Blixen Museum, get your game on at GP Karting, and stop by Matbronze Wildlife Art.

To see more things to do, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Nairobi route builder website.

Milan, Italy to Nairobi is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Milan to Nairobi due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Milan in April, expect Nairobi to be a bit warmer, temps between °C and °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Tue) to allow time to drive to Tsavo National Park East.
