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 9th (Sun) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, take a memorable tour with Tours, stroll through Giraffe Centre, and look for gifts at Ocean Sole (Flip the Flop).

For traveler tips, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Nairobi day trip planning website.

Montreal, Canada to Nairobi is an approximately 21.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 8 hours traveling from Montreal to Nairobi. Expect somewhat warmer temperatures when traveling from Montreal in May; daily highs in Nairobi reach °C and lows reach °C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Tue) early enough to travel to Mombasa.

Mombasa rests on the exotic shores of the Indian Ocean and serves as a globally popular vacation destination thanks to its classy hotels and friendly and relaxed atmosphere.
On the 12th (Wed), see exotic creatures in open habitats at a safari tour. Here are some ideas for day two: get engrossed in the history at Fort Jesus Museum, soothe aching muscles at Fitness For Life GYM, and then tour the pleasant surroundings at Haller Park.
