You're likely to visit Nairobi at least once on a trip to Kenya, as the sprawling city houses the country's international airport and remains the jump-off point for many tours and safaris.
Spend the 20th (Fri) exploring nature at Nairobi National Park. Spend the 22nd (Sun) spotting exotic species with a safari tour. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, examine the collection at Karen Blixen Museum, and admire the striking features of African Heritage House.

To see where to stay, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, you can read our Nairobi trip itinerary planning website .

If you are flying in from Kenya, the closest major airport is Jomo Kenyatta International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Nairobi can reach 28°C, while at night they dip to 19°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Sun) so you can travel to New York City.

New York City is known for museums, nightlife, shopping, historic sites, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the pleasant sights at Central Park, admire the landmark architecture of Grand Central Terminal, make a trip to Times Square, and enjoy breathtaking views from Empire State Building.
