Although I have reviewed each of these locations separately some tour operators offer these as one package as our one did. An early start in the park followed by a visit to the Sheldrick Elephant Centre and a break for lunch and on to the Giraffe Centre, Karen Blixen Musemand Kazuri Beads factory makes up a very full and exciting...

Unforgettable experience, went with a group of around 20 and we all loved it. Gave the giraffe kissing a miss though!

The Nairobi park is a great, easy, inexpensive safari drive for someone with little time or funds. The Karen Blixen Museum doesn't have much to offer. Unless you are someone really interested in her personal history, this is a place to skip. The Giraffe Centre is great. You get to hand feed giraffes up close. there are people there giving... More

Was able to see lions,giraffe,rhino,zebras and an great number of birds....signage needs to improve and they should have a faciltiy to give realtime information of where the lions are...this will bring in more crowds....the souvenier centre is boring and has very few options....there should be more things to do

Nairobi National Park, Karen Blixen Museum, and Giraffe Center are really great for a first time visitor to Kenya to see. I would first go to Blixen and Giraffe Center (recommend lunch at Blixen Coffee Garden restaurant). If you are going on a safari elsewhere in Kenya, Nairobi National Park is not an absolute must. Tickets are expensive and there... More

I would highly recommend stopping at these three attractions if you have a day or two in Nairobi. Each is very interesting and very well run and well managed.

Great trip which can be done in 1/2 to 1 day. Add the baby elephant orphanage which is only about 12 km away. Hint, if you don't want to get stuck in traffic, leave really early, like 6:00 am - the traffic is already heavy at 6:00 am and it will take 2 - 2 1/2 hours to get up... More
