Malindi

— 3 nights
Offering pristine, palm-lined beaches, all-inclusive resorts, and warm, sunny weather, the port town of Malindi rightly established itself as one of Kenya's prime tourism spots.
You've added Pathway Safaris, Watamu Beach, Upinde Diving Centre, and other attractions to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to Local Ocean Conservation and Mangrove Boardwalk Mida Creek. You'll explore and learn at Malindi Museum and Ndoro Sculpture Garden Malindi. Get out of town with these interesting Malindi side-trips: Watamu (Spiaggia delle Tartarughe & Isola dell'Amore).

To find photos, where to stay, more things to do, and tourist information, refer to the Malindi trip maker site.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major aiport is Moi International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 36°C in January, and nighttime lows around 29°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Thu) early enough to fly to Nairobi.

Nairobi

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.

Step off the beaten path and head to Mount Longonot and National Archives. Step out of the city life by going to Ngong Hills and Climbing Tours. The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages, look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, look for gifts at Ocean Sole (Flip the Flop), and have some family-friendly fun at GP Karting.

Diani Beach

— 5 nights
On a vacation in Diani Beach, a bustling resort town on Kenya's eastern coast, you can take advantage of a pristine sandy shore fringed by a verdant forest.

The savannahs of Kenya contain some of the most iconic sights in Africa, stirred in the minds of many when they think of the continent. Big cats, elephants, and rhinos remain major inhabitants of this vast country, with a number of safari centers running trips across the region's World Heritage-listed national parks. Trips to rural villages, where many travelers choose to join up various volunteer projects, represent some of the most inspiring and enriching things to do in Kenya.
