Nairobi

— 4 nights

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Shri Swaminarayan Mandir and Nairobi Mosques. Step out of the city life by going to Ngong Hills and Adrenaline & Extreme Tours. The adventure continues: see the interesting displays at Aero Club of East Africa (ACEA), take in the exciting artwork at Upepo Photography Gallery, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and browse the exhibits of Fundii Centre for the Arts.
