If you’re shopping around, search no more! What an amazing experience and our driver/guide Stephen was what made the biggest difference. He picked me up promptly at my hotel, we picked up a second person and headed to the giraffe centre. We basically had the place to ourselves. He worked hard taking pics of us and getting the better food pellets. Off we went to the elephants where we magically got to the front of the line. We were first in there and got the best spot: front row, sun behind us, under a tree. Again, it was Stephen that made this go from a great experience to an unforgettable one. Book and enjoy!

We booked our tour through Viator before we left the UK. We had a one day stop over in Nairobi due to our safari flights and, as a honeymoon gift, some friends had paid for us to do this tour. Stephen was our guide and turned up bang on time at our hotel to pick us up; he was very friendly and knowledgeable and couldn't have done more to make the day special for us.
Stephen made sure we arrived at the Giraffe sanctuary early in order to avoid the crowds and we had great fun feeding the giraffes whilst Stephen took lots of photos for us.
After this we went to the Elephant Orphanage and Stephen made sure we were in a good place in the queue to allow us to get the best spot once they opened the gates. He clearly knew what he was doing and he got us into a position where we had a fantastic view of the elephants and got to stroke them; one even took a bit of a liking to me and headbutted me a few times!
Once we were finished at the Orphanage, Stephen took us to a lovely restaurant to order our lunch and whilst they prepared it we went along to the bead factory where we had a guided tour and were amazed by the patience and dedication of the women who work there. We picked up some souvenirs in the shop before heading back for our lunch, which ended up being one of the best meals we had whilst in Kenya! After this Stephen drove us back to the hotel and gave us a fridge magnet of a giraffe as a gift.
Overall, we had an absolutely fantastic day, it was made relaxed and enjoyable by Stephen's superb proffessionalism and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour.
