Information & Facts

Activities

Nairobi is a very interesting city so there are lots of things to do when you visit Nairobi. The Nairobi National Park is a must-visit when you come to town. Inside the park are elephants, rhinos, lions, cheetahs, leopards, buffaloes, zebras, giraffes and more.

Take your time to visit the Karen Blixen Museum.  The farm that the Danish author of the famous Out of Africa lived on from 1917 to 1931 is now a museum. A tour of the house is an intimate experience — in one corner is a lantern that Blixen hung on her veranda to let her ill-fated lover, English hunter Denys Finch Hatton, know she was home, and his monogrammed books still line the shelves.

Visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, located in the Nairobi National Park is most famously known for its elephant and rhino orphanage. They adopt orphaned baby elephants and rhinos, take good care of them and they have been outstanding in their efforts in conserving Africa's wildlife. Once the baby elephants ‘graduate’ from the nursery, at about two to three years’ old, they are reintegrated into the wild in Tsavo East National Park. A visit to the centre is well worth it.
