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 29th (Sat) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 31st (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. The adventure continues: get interesting insight from Tours, examine the collection at Nairobi National Museum, look for gifts at Noorjehan Collections Ltd, and buy something for everyone on your list at The Hub Karen.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and other tourist information, read our Nairobi itinerary planning website.

Islamabad, Pakistan to Nairobi is an approximately 16-hour flight. The time zone difference when traveling from Islamabad to Nairobi is minus 2 hours. In August, Nairobi is a bit cooler than Islamabad - with highs of °C and lows of °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve.
