Day 1: Nairobi Hotel-Nairobi Park-Giraffe Center-David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage
Start your day with a 6:30AM pickup from your Nairobi hotel.
Head over to the Nairobi National Park, the most accessible of all of Kenya’s parks. See the rhinos, lions, leopards, buffalo, and 450 species of birds as you tour.
Next stop is the world famous David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage from 11:00AM – 12:00PM to meet a herd of baby elephants and learn about the work done to rescue them from poachers. The orphanage successfully raises milk-dependent baby elephant and rhino orphans. During your hour there, the baby elephants will be brought out to play and feed as you watch them from behind a rope.
You will then be driven to the Giraffe Center to get up close and personal with Rothschild giraffes, Africa’s tallest mammals. Here you will ascend up to an observation platform where you can meet giraffes at their eye level. Pet, stroke, scratch and feed them, and if you are brave you can even kiss them.
After the morning excitement, we visit Karen Blixen Coffee Garden for a delicious lunch of international standard. Relax in the shady garden and enjoy a selection of high-quality international cuisine.
After lunch you will be dropped off to your Nairobi Hotel. End of tour.
