BEST TIME TO GO
TOUR AT A GLANCE
Get ready to embark on an unforgettable adventure to Nairobi, Kenya, where you’ll find a plethora of exciting activities to keep you engaged. Despite its reputation for being unwelcoming to tourists, Nairobi is home to a host of intriguing sights, including the Muthiaga Golf Club, located in the lush Karura Forest, which hosted the Kenya Open Golf Championship until 2004.
If you’re interested in wildlife, you can visit the Giraffe Center, made famous by the book and film “Out of Africa,” and see the critically endangered Rothschild’s giraffes up close. Or, you can spend an afternoon at a Nairobi elephant orphanage run by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust and get up close and personal with the rescued elephants, watching them play in the mud and petting them as they’re fed milk.
For golf enthusiasts, Karen Country Club and Windsor Golf Club both offer excellent 18-hole courses with unique features such as flowering plants, lakes, and wetlands. Windsor Golf Club, designed by Tom Macauley, winds its way through native woods and coffee fields, with springy fairways, true greens, water hazards, sand bunkers, and punishing rough.
If you’re looking for a wildlife experience, the Mara North Conservancy is a private wilderness that covers over 30,000 hectares and is home to various species of plants, reptiles, birds, and mammals, including elephants, rhinoceroses, buffaloes, lions, leopards, and cheetahs. You can also visit the nearby Masai Mara National Reserve for a game drive and observe the famous Serengeti wildebeest migrations and the critically endangered African wild dog and black rhino species.
For an extraordinary experience, you can embark on a hot air balloon safari above the Masai Mara and enjoy the little things like animal trails, flowers, and micro-ecosystems by leaving the automobile behind.
Sabyinyo Silverback Lodge, nestled in the foothills of the Virunga Mountains, is the perfect place to stay while you seek out the rare mountain gorillas. You’ll have the opportunity to observe these beautiful primates in their natural habitat, foraging, playing, eating, or sleeping. Though the journey to reach them may be difficult, the reward is worth it, and you’ll have a chance to visit the place where Dian Fossey conducted her revolutionary research.
Finally, you can search for the golden monkeys, a unique species to the Volcanoes National Park’s high-altitude woodlands, and observe them racing after each other in circles or swinging through bamboo. You’ll see their gorgeous reddish-gold backs as they leap amid the thick undergrowth of the forest floor.
