-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Day 1: Nairobi City

Arrive at the JKI Airport to be met by your guide. Birding starts right
away from the stairs off the plane as the Little, African Palm Swifts and

National Museum’s birds, ethnography, geology, prehistory galleries (among
others) as well as the Snake Park. This is the right place to learn and

natural resources. Birding continues around the museum’s botanical garden
or elsewhere depending on the time. Overnight in Nairobi Hotel Boulevard.

Day 2: Olorgesaille
