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: tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Nairobi National Park.

For traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Nairobi planning tool .

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Nairobi. In October, plan for daily highs up to 30°C, and evening lows to 19°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve.
