Once you have booked your cheap flight tickets to Nairobi, make sure not to miss these amazing experiences.
The best things to do in Nairobi are –
Nairobi National Park
It is Kenya’s first national park and it is only 7 kilometres away from the city centre. It is also a rhino sanctuary, which protects more than 50 of these critically endangered creatures. If you are lucky, you may spot lions, gazelles, buffaloes, warthogs, cheetahs, zebras, giraffes, and ostriches, and more than 400 species of birds have been recorded in the wetlands.
David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
This is at the gate of Nairobi National Park – an elephant rescue and rehabilitation program founded in 1977. The centre cares for young abandoned elephants and rhinos to release them back to the wild.
Karen Blixen Museum
This museum is located at the foot of the Ngong Hills and is the former home of the author of Out of Africa. Visitors can tour the well-preserved colonial farmhouse, a kitchen in a separate building, a coffee-drying plant in the woodland, and an agricultural college on the grounds. You can also relive the author’s life through photographs and books owned by them.
Come face to face with endangered Rothschild’s Giraffe located on the edge of Nairobi National Park. And, then you could enjoy a 1.5 km self-guided walk in the adjacent nature reserve.
Nairobi National Museum
If you want to educate yourself or travelling with some geeks then, head to Nairobi National Museum for 900 stuffed birds and mammals, fossils from Lake Turkana, ethnic displays from various Kenyan tribal groups, and exhibits of local art.
