When I arrive in Nairobi will I be able to book a tour of the city and a trip to the Sheldrick Wildlife Centre with the concierge at the Intercontinental or can someone recommend a tour company or guide?

Its possible to book a tour after your arrival in Nairobi and while at the hotel, however not all hotels offer such services. Again am not sure if the Concierge from Intercontinental will be able to assist. While at Nairobi you can easily visit companies arranging such tours. You can try email Rose on muthoniroz@gmail.com, or call her +254723202194 she has her office few metres from the Intercontinental and shes has a daily departure of day tour trips. She always uses her car to bring you to and from the office for you to book the tour which is again very safe for someone new with the city

yes, you may be able to book your trip once in Nairobi but it is always good to know who you are traveling with in advance. my take will be e-safaris Kenya, they have an office at Hurlingam, just a few minutes drive there. Alternatively write to them directly at e-safaris.com . Day trips is their specialty and I am sure you will find their services useful.

Nice time.

There's no need of a Tour Operator nor services of concierge.

The Inter Cont is located in the town itself. Simply pick up a Guide Map of the town centre & wander around yourself. It's NOT safe to walk at night. BEWARE OF PICKPOCKETS.

To get to Sheldrick (in Karen), take a taxi from the hotel. Make most of the day by going to NBI Safari Walk/Orphanage (Langata) & Giraffe Centre (also in Karen).
