Nairobi has heaps to do. There are museums, the elephant orphanage, giraffe centre, shopping, dining, and so on. It all depends on what you like to do, and how much time you have.

Many people do enjoy a full day in Nairobi either before or after their safari.

Head out to Naivasha & Nakuru. Only 3 hours drive from NBI. In Nakuru, you'll see lions, rhinos, gazelles,etc,etc..

We spent two extra days before our safari in Jan, in Nairobi and returned last month in June with our family and did the same. There are many great things to see and do. We are from the United States and traveled with our grown children and grandchildren in June. Let me know if you need a driver. We hired an awesome gentleman who helped us arrange everything and was super reasonable and very honest and reliable. You can email me at kellie@apologia.com

Good luck!
