Nairobi's international airport is the starting point. Due of crime and traffic, some avoid Nairobi, but I wouldn't. Outlying attractions are scarce. Stay in a tranquil suburb like Langata or Karen, where most of the attractions are, to escape the city center. Karen Blixen Museum, Giraffe Centre, and Elephant Opharnage are nearby. The Nairobi National Park, 15 minutes from the international airport, has grass plains and acacia bush for staining. Capital cities rarely have animals.
Day 2 explores Nairobi. Taxis are available. Visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Opharnage first. Poached elephant calves from across the nation are brought here for specialist treatment. You'll learn about the adorable baby elephants and maybe even go close to them. The orphanage is open from 11am until 12pm for $7.
The Giraffe Centre follows. It saves the Rothschild's Giraffe and has engaging activities. From a wooden platform, you may touch and kiss giraffes.
Visit Kenya's Bomas. A Kenyan tribes museum. The site contains a typical village with bomas representing different ethnic groups. Daily traditional dance prefinances. Rest at your hotel before the next day.
Nairobi National Park will host your first Kenyan game drive on the third day. Kenya's first national park opened in 1946. In the 1910s, the colonial administration established this game reserve. The national park has four of the Big Five minus elephant. The park's modest size makes seeing them likely.
Accommodation: Ole Sereni
The enjoyable part of the experience can now begin in earnest. You pack up and leave town for the wilderness. There is no way to visit Kenya and not see the famous Maasai Mara National Reserve. Time your arrival to the park so that you may begin your game drive before nightfall. The greatest time to visit the reserve is from July to October, when millions of wildebeests flood across the Mara River, but it can get busy then. There is no bad season to visit Kenya to view the Maasai Mara, as you will have a great chance of seeing wildlife there. There are many of animals to see, including the "big 5" as well as giraffes, buffaloes, zebras, and lions.
While self-driving is an option in the reserve, it is strongly advised that visitors hire a wildlife guide who can provide more in-depth information on the animals and help spot species that might otherwise go unnoticed. Going hot air ballooning may be one of the many things you do while there. If you are celebrating a particular occasion, it will be one you will never forget. The Maasai people's home will also be on your itinerary. Historically, a man among the Maasai was not considered a true man until he had killed a lion. At the venue, you can find out more information on the topic. Everyone who comes will learn a lot and have a great time.
Accommodation: Sarova Mara Game Camp
Visit the coast of Kenya after your time in Maasai Mara for a change of scenery. Relaxing here is a must, especially if you are taking the kids along. A local flight to Mombasa from Nairobi leaves quite early in the morning. Take the Likoni ferry from Mombasa to Diani Beach. The experience is frantic, but eerily quiet.
Diani Beach, Kenya's most well-known beach destination, features 17 kilometers of beautiful, powdery white sand—the perfect place to relax post-safari. In general, the Beach offers a wide variety of activities. Sports like skydiving, bungee jumping, and snorkeling are on the list. It's also possible to just relax on the beach and take it easy.
Accommodation: Villa Mandari
The best for last, as they say. Your flight to Lamu Island will depart from Mombasa. Traveling by car would be impractical because the ancient island is located in the country's far north. It takes about 45 minutes and costs roughly $40 to fly one way from Mombasa to Lamu. Fantastic spots include both FLY 540 and Skyward Express.
As you get to Lamu, you'll start moving to the easygoing beat of the Swahili coast. When it comes to East African Swahili towns, Lamu is by far the best preserved. The village of Lamu is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, hence only donkeys and pushcarts are permitted on the island. The Old Town of Lamu is large enough that you can easily spend a few days wandering around aimlessly. Enjoy your morning Arabic coffee while listening to the call to prayer. Over 100 years after Lamu was settled, the dhow and the donkey are still the sole viable modes of transportation. Sheila village is another must-see in the archipelago, and you can get there by hiring a dhow and taking a tour around the islands. There are stately stone mansions, modest thatched homes, a few mosques and ruins, and a large square ringed by few market booths amid this maze of donkey-wide lanes.
Accommodation: Jannataan Hotel
Your trip has sadly come to an end. I recommend flying back to Nairobi in the morning from Lamu to make sure you catch your flight home. A single flight from Lamu to Nairobi costs around 90 dollars in 2hours.
