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.
Nairobi is known for parks, wildlife, museums, nature, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Nairobi National Park, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To see reviews, ratings, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Nairobi itinerary planner .

Kuwait City, Kuwait to Nairobi is an approximately 11.5-hour flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Kuwait City in October, expect Nairobi to be a bit cooler, temps between 30°C and 19°C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 19th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve.
