Highlights
    What to Expect
    The day tour starts 6:00AM by picking you from your hotel/residence and a short transfer to Nairobi National Park. From there, take an exciting 4-hour game drive through the park. Stay on the lookout for many species of game animals, including black rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffalo's, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest, as well as countless species of wild birds. The park’s open border on its southeast perimeter allows a corridor for the natural migration of game animals during the seasonal rains. Other attractions include the ivory burning site monument, and walking trails at hippo pools.
    10.30hrs You will exit the Nairobi National Park to be taken to the David  Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage Conservation Center, Once you arrive you will take a walk through the nursery and you will explore the pathe and trails the infants take. See a mud or elephants being fed. Walk around the stables that the elephants sleep in at night accompanied by their elephant keepers. The feeding time is from 11am to 12 pm. There after you will head to the Tamambo Restaurant/Mamba Village  for lunch(Own Expense).
    After lunch we head to the Giraffe Center the headquarter for the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife made famous by 'Daisy Rothschild', a giraffe calf rescued from Soi, on the Western Kenya border. Daisy and her family form only a small part of a herd of these gentle giants, living in a semi wild state at Giraffe Manor. These animals will come to a protecting wall to be fed. Make most use of your visit when you go to the Giraffe center nature trail up until the Gogo river. This is what most people don't get to see and it's a fascinating place to walk in the nature, with bushes on either side and birds giving the most wondrous songs. Reach down to the river and search for giraffes in the wild. The trail will take about 1 hour going up and down in a relaxing pace.
    You then drive to Kazuri Beads factory where a team of African women offer paints and necklaces. At around 5pm, you will be brought back to your hotel.
    NB: Christmas Day 25th December - David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage is closed for Holiday therefore we will offer alternative
