Nairobi is known for parks, museums, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: explore the wealth of natural beauty at Nairobi National Park, stroll through Giraffe Centre, get interesting insight from Tours, and see the interesting displays at Nairobi National Museum.

The savannahs of Kenya contain some of the most iconic sights in Africa, stirred in the minds of many when they think of the continent. Big cats, elephants, and rhinos remain major inhabitants of this vast country, with a number of safari centers running trips across the region's World Heritage-listed national parks. Trips to rural villages, where many travelers choose to join up various volunteer projects, represent some of the most inspiring and enriching things to do in Kenya.
