Nairobi

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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Karen Blixen Museum and Shri Swaminarayan Mandir. Spend the 4th (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. Spend the 6th (Tue) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Giraffe Centre, admire all the interesting features of GP Karting, contemplate the long history of Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages, and admire the masterpieces at Nairobi Gallery.
