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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Safaris and Giraffe Centre. Spend the 3rd (Wed) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 4th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, try to win big at Ngong Racecourse, tee off at Mumo Tours, and see the interesting displays at Karen Blixen Museum.

To find traveler tips, maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our Nairobi journey planner .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. In April, daytime highs in Nairobi are 30°C, while nighttime lows are 20°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Sun) early enough to travel to Maasai Mara National Reserve.
