Nairobi is known for parks, wildlife, museums, nature, and shopping. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take an exotic tour of a safari tour, examine the collection at Nairobi National Museum, explore the striking landscape of Nairobi National Park, and admire the landmark architecture of African Heritage House.

To see maps, traveler tips, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Nairobi trip planner .
