Full description
Start with pickup from your hotel in Nairobi and travel to the Giraffe Centre, located approximately 20 kilometers from the city. The centre is the headquarters for the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife made famous by "Daisy Rothschild", a giraffe calf rescued from Soi, on the Western Kenya border. Daisy and her family form only a small part of a herd of these gentle giants, living in a semi-wild state at Giraffe Manor. Get up close the giraffes when they make their protecting wall to be fed. Learn about the conservation efforts undertaken at the centre to protect these majestic animals.

Next experience a small part of Kenya's colonial history. Visit Mbogani House, home to author Karen Blixen, which made famous by the film Out of Africa. The house has been restored by the Danish Community of Kenya and is one of the National Museums of Kenya. Learn about Karen Blixen's time in Kenya, and the story behind her famous novel and film.
