How to spend 2 days in Nairobi?
Day 1 in Nairobi
Begin your day by spending your morning at Nairobi National Park, Nairobi’s prime attraction. Witness the exotic wild zebras, lions and rhinos as you traverse through the grasslands in an open-air gypsy. Experience the best of the African wildlife at the Nairobi National Park.
In the late afternoon, head to the enjoyable David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Orphanage. Located inside the Nairobi National Park, this is the best place to spend time with baby elephants and watch them bathed and fed!
After an exciting day amidst animals and birds, spend the evening shopping at the local Maasai markets in Nairobi. These markets, more than being perfect for a retail-therapy, are ideal for meeting locals and experiencing the culture of Nairobi first-hand. The markets are also a great place to discover local art and artisans who come from smaller towns.
Day 2 in Nairobi
Early in the morning, take a stroll through Nairobi Safari Walk, which is an enclosed recreational facility created to give tourists a glimpse of the Kenyan wildlife. From Hippos to Cheetahs, this is the perfect place to see the African animals in their natural habitat.
Then, visit the Giraffe Centre, which is home to the endangered Rothschild's giraffe. This is a great place to learn about the conservation initiatives and the giraffe breeding practices. In the afternoon, head to the Karen Blixen Museum for a good time. The museum contains information and artefacts about the life of Danish author Karen Blixen famous for her book Out of Africa.
End your day at the Marula Studios, an artists' co-operative which is perfect to shop for unique souvenirs. You can also have a good cup of Kenyan coffee in the next-door café.
