Holidays to Nairobi hold a number of attractions, the Nairobi National Museum being one of them. A good introduction to exploring the city, the museum is home to some excellent exhibitions: the prehistory section is particularly noteworthy. Nairobi's Karen Blixen Museum is also worth a visit - named after the baroness from whom it takes its name, Blixen was the author of the well-known book 'Out of Africa'. With her story so remarkable and engaging the chance to step back in time is not to be missed.

To begin the wildlife adventure post safari, Nairobi National Park and the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust are good places to start. The national park is Nairobi's principal attraction and set only 7km outside of the city centre. Lion sightings are good and there's the chance to see huge numbers of plains game, elephant being the exception. However, you can get up close to the gentle giants at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Orphaned baby elephant, and occasionally rhino, call the trust home. They are hand reared by keepers before their eventual release back into the wild.
