Spend the 25th (Mon) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. It doesn't end there: examine the collection at Nairobi National Museum.

Offering pristine, palm-lined beaches, all-inclusive resorts, and warm, sunny weather, the port town of Malindi rightly established itself as one of Kenya's prime tourism spots.
