Best Time to Visit Nairobi
A city containing great scenic beauty as well as an enviable population of Big 5 game animals, Nairobi is a place you want to visit when the weather is fine outside. As such, avoid going from mid-March to May, as well as the months of October to December. These are the city’s 2 rainy seasons, and a trip there during this time is guaranteed to put a damper on your outdoor itinerary. Choose instead to visit from late June to early October, when the temperature is a comfortable 21-25 °C.
Things to do in Nairobi
How many capital cities in the world can boast of a full-fledged safari park located just a stone’s throw from the urban district? Like New York’s Central Park, Nairobi National Park offers an oasis of primitive tranquillity that one can use to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. Situated just 7 kilometres from town, the National Park is home to Africa’s most notable residents - 4 of the famous Big 5 (otherwise known as lions, leopards, buffalo and rhinos) as well as countless wildebeest, giraffe, ostriches, zebra and more.
