Wow that is a general question, I will offer you what to do in Nairobi and while on safari:


Nairobi city tour covers the modern city centre, the colorful city market, Parliament buildings, Kenyatta International Conference Centre; the landmark of Nairobi (KICC), The 7th Memorial Park (Bomb blast, the Railway Station, The

Railway Museum and The National Theatre.

Also included is the Phoenix Theatre, McMillan Memorial Library and the renowned National Museum where there are spell-binding displays of the early man, tribal regalia and flora and fauna of Kenya. A visit to the adjacent snake park is also included. The tour returns to your city hotel or residence.

Check out also: David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage

The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is home to many orphaned elephants and rhino. Here, they are cared for from an early age before being released into the wild once they are ready to take care of themselves

Orphaned elephants are cared for by surrogate human mothers who nurse, play, and live with them 24 hours a day. The orphanage is open 11am-12pm daily, at which time visitors can watch the elephants being fed by their respective caretakers. Visitors can make entrance donations when visiting (amounts of KSH 500+ are appropriate).

For US$ 50 or Kshs 4000 a year, you too can adopt an elephant. This will ensure you a monthly email updating you on the progress your adopted elephant calf. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is also home to a few orphaned Rhinos. It is definitely a must visit the next time you are in Nairobi.

You can choose also to go for a safari, maybe a classic 8 days safari. In an 8 day safari you can experience the urban bustle of Nairobi then spend time in Samburu (known for its unique wildlife/ birdlife i.e. the Beisa Oryx, Reticulated Giraffe, Somali Ostrich, The Gerenuk and The Gevy's Zebra). Then head off to The Ark in the Aberdares for a unique game viewing experience.

After the Aberdares, you will be taken for a great bird watching experience at Lake Nakuru. Of course, the icing on the cake would be Masai Mara, where the abiding savannah stretches to the horizon and wildlife viewing is at its best. This is quintessential Africa, where wildlife roams, legends begin & adventures await
