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.
Attractions like David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and Giraffe Centre make great kid-friendly stops. For shopping fun, head to Utamaduni Craft Centre or Fundii Centre for the Arts. The adventure continues: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Nairobi National Park, get your game on at GP Karting, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and browse the different shops at The Hub Karen.

Plan my Nairobi trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
