  • 1. The Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage - Nairobi

    A haven for elephant orphans, rhinos and other animals. A truly wonderful place where they do inspirational work on saving orphaned elephants. Open only between 11-12noon. Get there early so as not to miss a minute of the informative talks given by the keepers. Opportunity to buy gifts or make a donation afterwards - reccommended.

  • 2. The Girraffe Centre - Langata, Nairobi

    A lovely, educational place where you are able to hand feed the giraffes . The kids love it!!! One of the nicest gift shops and not too expensive

  • 3. The Anchor Pub and Restaurant, Westlands, Nairobi

    A great place for resonably priced drinks and delicious food. Popular with the local Asians and office workers.

  • 4. Haller Park - Bamburi Nature Trails - Mombasa

    An old cement quarry that has been turned into a spectacular nature reserve. 100 yr old tortoises roam the grounds and all sorts of wildlife to see. After paying the fee (about Ksh 1000 for an adult and a child), you hike through the most spectacular trail to reach the reception pavillion where a knowledgeable guide will show you round. Wear sturdy shoes and expect to spend at least 2 hours here. I could have spend double that! This is where the baby hippo called Owen thinks he is a tortoise and hangs out with the oldtimer, Mzee. Not for the physically infirm. Check for feeding times.
