Description

Spend the day visiting the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphaned Trust and the Giraffe Center, home to the Rothschild giraffe. You will also be taken to Kazuri Beads Women's Factory and afternoon visit to the Bomas of Kenya for cultural dances from different ethnic groups.

Start your tour with pick up at any hotel/ home within Nairobi at 8:30 am

You will then be driven to the Giraffe centre where you will learn more about the conversation efforts to conserve an endangered species.

The second stop is the Elephant Orphaned Trust; it is strictly open between 11 am and 12 noon. Here you will be able to see rescued baby and teenage elephants and learn their unique stories of how they got there, how they got their names and what plans are there to release them.
You will then be driven to the Kazuri Beads factory. This is a pottery company that makes one of the world most beautiful beads. You will be shown all the stages from the start to the finish. It’s also a unique factory as it employs single mother parents from the neighborhood who earn a living to support their families. 

You will be taken for lunch (optional) and then start the drive to Bomas of Kenya. The Bomas of Kenya is a cultural centre at Langata, near the main gate to Nairobi National Park. The talented resident artistes perform traditional dances and songs taken from the country's various tribal groups, including Arab-influenced Swahili Taarab music, Kalenjin warrior dances, Embu drumming and Kikuyu circumcision ceremonies. It's touristy, of course, but it's still a spectacular afternoon out.It is a must visit for all visitors.
