worth staying an extra day in Nairobi?

Planning to go on safari in Kenya. Thinking to maybe plan staing in Nairobi for one more day after the tour ends. How safe would it be for a solo female, and is it any fun?

You could spend the morning on a visit to Daphne Sheldrick's elephant orphanage, followed by the Karen Blixen museum in the afternoon. As for safety, normal precautions apply as for any big city. I would certainly advise that you stay inside after dark.

Last minute shopping is always a good way to end the safari. One more day after safari is nice because it allows you time to walk around in town(depending on the hotel you are staying in).

Just take precautions while walking around!!
