We had an amazing time on this day trip - and our guide, Paul, made it even better. We got to both the giraffes and the elephants before they opened so were able to spend the most amount of time with both (and Paul even helped us in the elephant orphanage to find the best spot for shade and photos). Along the way, we stopped at a great little roadside gift/coffee shop before finally eating a terrific lunch at Carnivore. Cannot recommend this enough for folks spending time in Nairobi!
I really enjoyed the trip. Alex is a very experienced driver and guide and managed to get us through Nairobi National Park without getting stuck unlike many other vehicles. We were also very lucky to have some amazing sightings. Unfortunately we arrived a little late at the Elephants but it was still a great experience non the less. I was a little disappointed by the Giraffe Sanctuary as I expected it to be a bit more organized and guided. It was a little overcrowded.
Very complete tour and worth seeing. Just be aware that different tours are mixed together so make sure when you meet your driver that you are with the right group. My driver had no idea that in addition the National Park I was also supposed to do the Elephant Orphanage and the Giraffes Center. I finally visited them but because I had to complain and asked to be driven in there. If you avoid that situation, totally worth it.
Fantastic tour in the Park - saw 4 of the big 5, including fabulous close encounter with a leopard. Alex, our driver, was superb! He responded to walkie-talkie message about the leopard and got us there in time to see her. Just great. Highly recommend this tour. Sheldrick elephant orphanage was also wonderful.
Alex the tour guide And the activity was fantastic, The park is beautiful and our guide knew how to get us to all the right spots , we did overlook in booking that the park fees are extra , so make sure you take that into account and make sure you are getting a good deal.
