Our adventure begins from your hotel. As we tour the city, we see the most interesting elements of Nairobi.
First stop is Nairobi National Park - where you get to see animals such as Rhinos, leopards, lions, giraffes, topi, wildebeest, zebras, elands, hartebeest, dik dik among many others.
David Sheldrick is a world–class conservation figure and the premier authority on the successful raising of milk–dependent infant elephant and rhino orphans. David Sheldrick's Animal Orphanage, can be only be visited for an hour every day between 11am and noon. During this hour the baby elephants are brought out to play and to feed, and visitors can watch them from a distance. Wardens are on hand to explain the work of the orphanage and to answer any questions.
Your tour takes you to the Giraffe Centre, an elevated treetop area where you may hand feed giraffes under the supervision of trained staff. Established by Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville in 1979 as a sanctuary for the rare Rothschild giraffe, the centre has a feeding platform where visitors can get views of the tall animals at eye level. Here a resident expert also presents a private briefing on the Centre’s work to save the endangered Rothschild giraffe.
After that you visit Karen Blixen Museum. Located on the outskirts of Nairobi on Karen road. Its history dates back to 1914, during the First World War, with the arrival of Karen Blixen from Denmark. At the foot of Ngong Hills, Karen Blixen established herself as a farmer. After her departure in 1931, the suburbs retained the commemorative home of Karen. The Danish government donated the house, and the surrounding land to Kenya after independence. The house was restored by the Danish government, and was used during the filming of "Out of Africa" which immortalized Karen Blixen's book by the same name. The museum was opened to the public in 1986.
Lastly you visit kazuri beads. KAZURI, which means “small and beautiful” in Swahili, begani in 1975 as a tiny workshop experimenting on making handmade beads. The factory is located in what used to be part of the Karen Blixen Estate (of the Academy Award winning film "Out of Africa" fame.
