3 Days in Nairobi: Suggested Itineraries

16 Reviews
Nairobi is a city alive with energy. From the bustling streets of city center, where well-dressed Kenyans rush through alleys on their way to work and vehicles vie for space on crowded streets, to the heavily populated outskirts, where the pace of life is just a little slower. Nairobi offers visitors a rare opportunity to experience two Africas simultaneously: the developed urban center and the quiet natural wonder. Three days in this buzzing capital offers enough time to fully enjoy both these worlds.  

Day 1: Culture in Nairobi
Begin the day with morning prayer at the Jamia Mosque in city center. Enjoy a steaming cup of masala tea before hopping a matatu to Nairobi National Museum. Explore Kenya’s cultural diversity and eclectic past before venturing to the Karen Bixen Museum. On this vast plantation history becomes even more real. Wander the grounds where Out of Africa was filmed and explore the home where this iconic author penned her famous book. Finish the day walking the streets of Kibera, the largest slum in Africa. 

Day 2: Nairobi’s Natural Wonders
Grab breakfast at one of the city’s numerous cafes and head to Uhuru Gardens Memorial Park, where the grassy hillside provides perfect views of Nairobi waking up. Then drive to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust for an hour-long presentation on the rehabilitation of elephant orphans. After experiencing these young ones in captivity, head to Nairobi National Park, where the Big Five wander just 20 minutes outside the city center, and enjoy a safari within view of skyscrapers. 

Day 3: Day Trips from Nairobi
Rise early to catch sunrise at the Great Rift Valley viewpoint on the way to the gates of Masai Mara. Spend several hours touring the park, where two million wildebeests migrate between July and October. Stop by a Masai Village to taste local food and learn about the culture and traditions of East Africa’s most recognized tribe before returning to the lit up skyline of Kenya’s capital city.
