Photograph wildlife with skyscrapers

Nairobi is probably the only place in the world you can get a photo of lions, cheetahs, zebras, or giraffes with skyscrapers in the background. We love Nairobi holidays for these magnificent wildlife photo opportunities, snapping pictures of towering giraffes, lumbering African buffalo, and shuffling elephants at Nairobi National Park. Inside the park, head to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to see baby rhinos and elephants getting mud baths in the afternoon sun or see the rare black rhinoceros in the rhino sanctuary.

Highlights of Nairobi

Nairobi National Museum

This national museum celebrates Kenya's history and culture. There are a variety of exhibits and displays about Kenya's ethnic groups, the natural history of the area, and numerous hominid fossils. Other attractions include a snake park, a botanical garden, and several contemporary African sculptures.

Karen Blixen Museum

This house-turned-museum was once the property of Karen Blixen, the Danish author who wrote the book Out of Africa, which chronicled her life at the estate. The property grounds gained international fame when the movie of the same name was released. Today you can explore the farm, take a guided tour, or see the original equipment from the coffee farm.

The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage

If you have ever wanted to see a baby elephant being exercised and bathed, this charming elephant orphanage is your chance. Founded and managed by Daphne Sheldrick, the widow of Game Warden David Sheldrick, the orphanage is home to elephant calves who were orphaned by poaching. The calves are raised before being moved to Tsavo National Park and carefully reintroduced into wild herds. 

Matutus

Matutus are the local transportation of Kenya. These minibuses are the best way of getting around and give a great insight into the culture of Kenya. The drivers like to pimp their rides and at night you will see neon lights flashing on the inside and outside of the vehicles. You may even find matutus with blaring sound systems and flat screen TVs. Make sure you negotiate the price prior to departing.

Rainy Season

Dry Season

Because of Nairobi’s elevation, the extreme hot temperatures in the rest of Africa are non-existent. Temperatures are warm and comfortable most of the year. The dry seasons are cooler between June and September and warmer in January and February. 

Our Favourite Season

Nairobi is best visited in the cooler dry months of June through September when you will find sunny days with blue skies and little rain. July through September is the wildebeest migration, occurring not far from Nairobi.
