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.
Spend the 15th (Sat) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 17th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and look for gifts at Utamaduni Craft Centre.
