How to Spend 2 Days in Nairobi
With two days in Nairobi, you can take in the essential city sights and still have time for a deeper dive into wildlife, culture, and cuisine. Whether you’re watching a traditional dance performance or spotting giraffes at the edge of the city, this is where Kenya’s magnificent nature meets urban culture. Here’s how to spend two days in Nairobi.
 
Day 1: Urban Exploring and Conservation
Morning: Start the day in the center of the action; downtown Nairobi is home to historic sites, Kenya’s parliament, and plenty of landmarks. It’s an exciting place, but Kenya’s colorful history is what makes the area so interesting, so join a guided tour to get the whole story.

Afternoon: Nairobi might feel a world away from Kenya’s vast national parks, but important conservation work happens right here. Visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to see an elephant orphanage, then head to the nearby Giraffe Centre to crane your neck at endangered Rothschild’s Giraffes.

Night: Meat is on the menu at the Carnivore Restaurant, where waiters serve your grilled meal on the tip of a sword. Since the sale of wild-game meat is banned here, don’t worry about finding a zebra on your plate, though you can dine on crocodile, ostrich, and camel.
 
Day 2: From Wildlife to Traditional Culture
Morning: Wake up early for a game drive through Nairobi National Park, taking advantage of the morning hours when the animals are most active; lions, cheetahs, rhinos, and buffalo all live here. Bring a camera, as images of free-ranging wildlife with a backdrop of the Nairobi city skyline are shots you won’t find anywhere else in the world.

Afternoon: Then explore Kenyan culture at Bomas of Kenya, which brings together some of the diverse cultures from across the country. From village homes to dance performances, it’s an all-ages attraction, but with the chance to meet and interact with Kenyans face-to-face it’s especially popular with kids. Alternatively, spend the afternoon touring communities in Nairobi committed to empowering local women.

Night: With one last night in Nairobi, make it count with tickets to a local show. To save the trouble of looking for taxis at night, consider booking tickets that include transport from your hotel.
