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.
Visit Karen Blixen Coffee Garden and Cottages and Shri Swaminarayan Mandir for their historical value. Appreciate the collections at Karen Blixen Museum and Nairobi Gallery. There's still lots to do: stroll through David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, explore the striking landscape of Nairobi National Park, look for gifts at Penny Winter Boutique, and take in the exciting artwork at Circle Art Gallery.

Plan a Nairobi trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

You can fly from Johannesburg to Nairobi in 5.5 hours. Alternatively, you can drive; or do a combination of train and car. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Johannesburg to Nairobi due to the time zone difference. When traveling from Johannesburg in December, plan for slightly colder days and about the same nights in Nairobi: temperatures range from 28°C by day to 19°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
