Malindi

— 3 nights
Offering pristine, palm-lined beaches, all-inclusive resorts, and warm, sunny weather, the port town of Malindi rightly established itself as one of Kenya's prime tourism spots.
Escape the urban bustle at Local Ocean Conservation and Isola dell'Amore. Museum-lovers will appreciate Malindi Museum and Ndoro Sculpture Garden Malindi. Step out of Malindi to go to Watamu and see Spiaggia delle Tartarughe, which is approximately 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: discover the deep blue sea with Blue-Fin Diving, get a new perspective on things with Upinde Diving Centre, tour in harmony with nature at Pathway Safaris, and get to know the fascinating history of Mangrove Boardwalk Mida Creek.

Nairobi

— 6 nights

Green City in the Sun

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.
Let the collections at National Archives and Upepo Photography Gallery capture your imagination. Take a break from the city and head to Ngong Hills and Climbing Tours. Take a break from Nairobi with a short trip to Mount Longonot in Maai Mahiu, about 1h 50 min away. There's lots more to do: take an exotic tour of Beacon Safaris, get your game on at GP Karting, steep yourself in history at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages, and explore the galleries of Nairobi National Museum.

Diani Beach

— 5 nights
On a vacation in Diani Beach, a bustling resort town on Kenya's eastern coast, you can take advantage of a pristine sandy shore fringed by a verdant forest.

The savannahs of Kenya contain some of the most iconic sights in Africa, stirred in the minds of many when they think of the continent. Big cats, elephants, and rhinos remain major inhabitants of this vast country, with a number of safari centers running trips across the region's World Heritage-listed national parks. Trips to rural villages, where many travelers choose to join up various volunteer projects, represent some of the most inspiring and enriching things to do in Kenya.
