The Giraffe Centre is open Monday to Sunday, 9am to 5.30pm.
The National Museum boasts a fascinating range of cultural and natural history exhibits. There are huge galleries of stuffed wildlife, displays of Kenyan tribal group culture, re-creations of rock art and an exhibition of hominid fossils from Lake Turkana in the north of Kenya.
The National Museum opening hours are Monday to Sunday, 9.30am to 6pm.
KAREN BLIXEN MUSEUM
This museum is the original farmhouse where the writer Karen Blixen (author of Out Of Africa) lived between 1914 and 1931. It is set in lovely gardens and is a famous piece of Nairobi’s cultural history.
The Museum opening hours are Monday to Sunday, between 9.30am and 6pm.
DAVID SHELDRICK ANIMAL TRUST
At Sheldrick’s you’ll see young orphaned African animals being reared in as close to their natural environment as possible. Depending on when you visit there’s a good chance you’ll be able to pet a baby elephant and watch them suckle an elephant sized bottle.
The trust is only open to the public for one hour each day, between 11am and 12 noon.
NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK
Safari in the city. Nairobi National Park is the only national park to border a city of this size. It is 113 square kilometers of plains, cliffs and forest, home to large herds of Zebra, Wildebeest, Buffalo, Giraffe, Rhino, Cheetah, and Lions, living wild within 20 minutes of the centre of town.
The park is open for visitors between 9am and 5pm, seven days per week.
BOMAS OF KENYA
This is a cultural village where each boma (homestead) was built using traditional techniques of different Kenyan tribes. Through architecture, crafts, music and dance this village serves to preserve and display traditional Kenyan culture.
Visiting hours are 2.30pm - 4.30pm Monday to Friday, and 3.30pm -5.20pm on weekends.
