Depending upon your international flight schedule, you may need to spend an afternoon or a morning in the capital city, Nairobi. Luckily there are a multitude of interesting places to visit in Nairobi!

The Animal Orphanage
This orphanage is found at the main entrance to the Nairobi National Park. Home to abandoned or orphaned wildlife, the orphanage is run by the Kenya Wildlife Service. Lion, leopard, warthog, antelope, chimpanzee and otters are just a few of the animals to see; children in particular will enjoy a walk around this area.

The Nairobi National Park
Created in 1946, Kenya's oldest park is located right next to the Nairobi skyscrapers and is surprisingly rich with over 100 species of mammal. You will find four of the "Big Five" animals here; only elephants are missing. An afternoon or morning drive will take you through the entire park with animals and birds galore.

The Giraffe Manor
Situated on the outskirts of Nairobi, the Giraffe Manor is superb for children and those who like contact with animals! Here you will learn about the endangered Rothschild giraffe species while enjoying the chance to feed and stroke these beautiful animals.

The Karen Blixen Museum
Located in the original home of Karen Blixen, fans of her famous book, Out of Africa, will want to pay a visit to this beautiful home. With lovely grounds and plenty of birds to spot, an afternoon visit here is lovely!

Kenya National Museum
Offering an excellent introduction to Kenya's history, culture and natural history, the prehistory exhibit is the strongest feature, with samples of the famous Leakey digs. There are also excellent bird and butterfly exhibits as well as the superb tribal display, which features Joy Adamson's paintings.

For those in search of souvenirs, there are a number of different handicraft shops, offering carvings, jewelry, paintings, clothes, music and other arts and crafts.
