Nairobi Day Trips: Things to Do

Nairobi Day Trips: Things to Do

Kenya is all about wildlife and going on safari. So naturally its capital city of Nairobi is a portal to many nearby safari adventures. If you don’t have the time for a long country-wide trip, or, you’d just like to sample one or two national parks, Natural World Kenya Safaris has the perfect holiday solution for you.

The Best Things To Do  Around Nairobi

Choose from our Top 5 one-day Nairobi safari getaways for a non-stop dawn to dusk adventure exploring a diversity of landscapes, wildlife and activities. We feature trips to Kenya’s unmatched national parks, refuges and wildlife sanctuaries so you can experience the wonder of our natural environment.

Amboseli National Park is perhaps best known for its great elephant herds. You are guaranteed to view elephants of all sizes in this outstanding park. You’ll depart Nairobi before dawn and experience the African sunrise while traveling over the savannah. And you just might get views of Mt. Kilimanjaro along the way. The trip includes a safari breakfast, several game drives, lunch and an afternoon game drive, before heading back to Nairobi.

Lake Naivasha, Crescent Island & Hell’s Gate Park You’ll have time to visit all three parks with their variety of scenery, wildlife and activities, in one very active day. Departing from your Nairobi hotel at 7 am, you’ll have opportunities to view the towering escarpments of the Great Rift Valley. At Lake Naivasha enjoy a boat ride as you view wildlife on both land and water. Take a walking tour at Crescent Island Sanctuary and stroll amongst the giraffes. Then you’re off to Hell’s Gate National Park to hike and bike alongside zebra, giraffe and more. And to keep you fueled for the adventure, an ample buffet lunch will be served.

Ol Pejeta Conservancy is well known for its chimpanzee sanctuary and multitude of wildlife. Here it is possible to view the Big Five during your game drives as well as rhino and other small game. After your early morning Nairobi pickup, you’ll view coffee and tea plantations and possibly the snow-capped peak of Mt. Kenya. You’ll also enjoy the unique experience of crossing the equator. And should you choose, there is an optional visit to a Maasai village for a small fee.

Lake Nakuru, Lake Naivasha, Crescent Island Tour At Lake Nakuru National Park get set to view the endangered black and white rhinos, giraffe, zebra, lion, leopard, buffalo and more. The park also provides sightings of colorful birdlife, even flamingos. On freshwater Lake Naivasha, enjoy a water safari to view nearby hippos plus wildlife on the shore. Your day-long adventure caps off with a walking safari at Crescent Island.

You can find more detail on these tours below. But whichever adventure you choose, you’ll enjoy an activity filled day in the very experienced hands of Natural World Kenya Safaris.
