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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ngong Hills and Nature & Wildlife Tours. Visiting Nairobi National Park and Safaris will get you outdoors. Explore Nairobi's surroundings by going to Great Rift Valley (in Turkana District) and Kiambethu Farm (in Limuru). Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, bet on your favorite at GP Karting, grab your bike and head to Karura Forest, and see the interesting displays at Karen Blixen Museum.

To find other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, use the Nairobi travel route planner.

Lahore, Pakistan to Nairobi is an approximately 16-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pakistan Time (PKT) to Eastern African Time (EAT), which is usually a -2 hour difference. Plan for cooler temperatures traveling from Lahore in August, with highs in Nairobi at 26°C and lows at 16°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Tue) so you can drive to Naivasha.
