Nairobi is known for parks, museums, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, see Off-Road Tours, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and stop by Penny Winter Boutique.

For other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, go to the Nairobi travel planning site.
