Suggestions Things to do 2 Days in Nairobi

Hi there,

We're spending a couple days in Nairobi before going on Safari, and we're looking for suggestions for things to do, places to see while we're there. It's our first time in Africa.

1. Re: Suggestions Things to do 2 Days in Nairobi

I would suggest the following.

On Karen/Langata side:

Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage (public visiting hours 11am-12pm, or at "bedtime" after 5pm by appointment if you have adopted an ele or rhino)

The Giraffe Centre

Kazuri Beads http://www.kazuribeads.co.uk/

Marula Studios, home to the world's only flipflop recycling project kenya.mydestinationinfo.com/en/marula-studios and www.flipflopiwas.com

Karen Blixen Museum

Downtown:

The National Musem

The Railway Museum

RaMoMa (Rahimtullah Museum of Modern Art) …mydestinationinfo.com/en/ramoma-art-gallery

With two days, you could spend one over at the Karen attractions and the other at the downtown attractions.

Village Market for shopping, And One meal at Carnivore is indispensable !

Go for the Safari Walk at Nairobi National park, that one / two hour walk is Worth it!

The giraffe center and elephant's orphanage.

For food - Mediterraneo/Trattoria for Italian

Haandi for Indian

Hells Gate park is really great and you can easily spend there 2 days, you might also take a boat trip in lake Naivasha.
