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, admire the landmark architecture of African Heritage House, stop by Ocean Sole (Flip the Flop), and tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust.

Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Tue) early enough to travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve.
