Nairobi

Nairobi ©
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 31st (Tue) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 1st (Wed) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. There's much more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, stop by Utamaduni Craft Centre, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and have some family-friendly fun at GP Karting.

Plan my trip to Nairobi with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

London, UK to Nairobi is an approximately 13-hour combination of flight and bus. The time zone changes from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT) to Eastern African Time (EAT), which is usually a 3 hour difference. In July, daily temperatures in Nairobi can reach 26°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Fri) to allow time to travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve.
