Nairobi City Tour – Full Day
Early morning hotel pick up.
After a brief introduction, you proceed to Nairobi national park for an early morning game drives. The animals are easy to spot and you should look out for the rhinos in the park as they are a main item on your game driving experience. Hippos can be seen at the river or in some of the numerous man-made earth dams in the park.
After game drive at the park, leave the park at 10 am then head to David Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage, located on the edge of Nairobi National Park. Since its inception, the project has hand-reared more than 150 orphaned baby elephants, rhinos that have been orphaned in the wild, often due to poaching. The orphanage helps to reintegrate the animals back into the wild. Learn more about this fascinating venture and see the baby elephants being fed by their keepers.
You will proceed for your lunch at a restaurant to be advised by the guide. Proceed to Giraffe Center, after lunch. The giraffe center has been ostensibly set up as a breeding center for the endangered Rothschild giraffe, but now operates conservation/education programs for Kenyan school children. There is good information on giraffes available there, and an elevated feeding platform where visitors meet the resident giraffes face to face.
Later proceed to Bomas of Kenya. "Boma"- a Swahili word for enclosed homestead and there are now many different "Bomas", each one representing one of Kenya's major ethnic groups.
