Amazing day in Nairobi!!
Oct 2019
Absolute must if spending a day in Nairobi before your safari! This tour has all the best sites available in one. Our guide, Black Santa, was a true blessing and highly recommended!!
We were picked up at our hotel first thing in the morning and we were on our way to explore Nairobi. Santa was very knowledgeable and told us everything we wanted to know about Nairobi and the places we were visiting.
The elephant orphanage is open for 1 hour a day to visitors. It's a definite must see! Santa told us exactly where to stand and what to expect to have the best experience. We enjoyed it so much there and it was so touching we ended up adopting 2 elephants as gifts for our elephant lovers in our family. ($50/year).
The giraffe centre was amazing - allows you to have an up close experience with the Rothschild giraffes! A knowledgeable guide at the centre told us all about the 3 types of giraffes in Kenya. Perfect photo opportunities with giraffes here!
Santa took us to an authentic African restaurant for lunch. We made best use of our time by ordering from the car and going to visit the Kazuri bead factory while our food was being made. When we came back our food was ready, hot and delicious!!
It was very touching to hear about the mission of the Kazuri bead factory. We were able to see beads being made and saw the entire process from the raw clay to the final products. The women there were friendly and very talented! Excellent prices in the store at the end of the tour! So glad we were able to come here!
Our final stop was at Bomas of Kenya where we were entertained by local dances from around the country. Before leaving we walked around and saw examples of homes/villages from the past.
He also took us to a souvenir shop where the money they make helps the local people. Once you visit, you understand how much they really benefit from this small income. Beautiful things to remember your adventure.
Overall, we had a fantastic day with Black Santa and are so glad we booked this trip!

Great way to understand giraffes and get close to them
Jun 2019
This makes a good 1/2 day excursion from Nairobi. The centre provided an excellent insight into the Rothschild giraffe and allows visitors to feed them. Can get very busy on the weekends though. Try to get there early.

Fantastic Day in Nairobi by Perfect Wilderness
Jan 2019 • Family
We added a day in Nairobi after an 8 day Safari in Kenya, and this was the perfect day ! Our driver Santa picked us up at our hotel and at the end deposited us at the airport for our departure, it worked out perfectly ! He knew his way around Nairobi and knew so much history was so interesting. We got to experience the Baby Elephants at the Sheldrake Orphanage and it was amazing and not to be missed ! Then on to the Giraffe center where we got to pet, feed and hug Giraffes and learn more about their rescue. Fantastic ! we also stopped at a few shops for souvenirs, a nice lunch spot, and then the Dances before going to the airport. It was a wonderful day.. a private tour for just us. Some of our Safari friends were sorry they left and missed this one extra day in Nairobi which was so well worth it.. and i comment Perfect Wilderness for the completeness and efficiency with which they organized to get us to see so much before we left for the airport . Thank you Perfect Wilderness !

Nairobi Day Tour by Dennis
Today we took a tour of Nairobi. We were promptly picked up by Dennis from our hotel. Dennis is very knowledgeable and tells you everything along the way. We visited the Giraffe center, Elephant center, Karen Blixen Museum, and finally the Boma’s of Kenya. His timing was impeccable and he made sure everything went as planned. A great tour of Nairobi with a great tour guide and driver.

Great Nairobi experience
We had the pleasure of having Dennis as our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable and accommodating. We were able to get up close and personal with the animals at the elephant sanctuary and the giraffe center. We decided to take the bomas of Kenya option. Dennis explained the differences of all the tribes and answered all of our questions. We were even invited up to dance with the local dancers. Couldn’t have started our trip off any better. Great first activity.
