Full description
After being picked up at your hotel early in the morning at 6:00am, you will head towards Nairobi National Park, arriving at around 6:30am. From there, take an exciting 4-hour game drive through the park.
Stay on the lookout for many species of game animals, including black rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffalo, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest, as well as countless species of wild birds. The park’s open border on its southeast perimeter allows a corridor for the natural migration of game animals during the seasonal rains. Other attractions include the ivory burning site monument, and walking trails at hippo pools.  

Please note you will exit the Nairobi National Park at 10:30am to be able to make for the opening time at the Elephant Orphanage at 11:00am. Once you arrive you will take a walk through the nursery and you will explore the paths and trails the infants take. See a mud bath in action and walk around the stables that the orphaned elephants sleep in at night for warmth and protection, accompanied by their elephant keepers. You will stay till 12pm and then proceed to the Giraffe Center. Entry fees to the Orphanage are included.

Proceed to the Giraffe Center, the headquarter 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. These animals will come to a protecting wall to be fed. Make the most of your visit when you go to the Giraffe Center nature trail up until the Gogo River. This is what most people don't get to see and it's a fascinating place to walk in the nature, with bushes on either side and birds giving the most wondrous songs. The trail will take about 1-hour going up and down in a relaxing pace. Entry fees to the giraffe center are included . After the tour you will be dropped back to your hotel.
