Full description
Begin your 4-hour trip with a visit to the Giraffe Center, made famous by Daisy Rothschild, a giraffe calf rescued from the Western Kenya border. Daisy and her family form a small part of the herd, living in a semi-wild state at Giraffe Manor. Take the nature trail to the Gogo River and search for giraffes in the wild. Continue with a drive to Karen Blixen's home, made famous by the film, Out of Africa. Karen Blixen lived in the house from 1917 to 1931, when the farm was sold and she left Kenya. From the garden, enjoy magnificent views of the Ngong Hills. Visit nearby Kazuri Ltd. where African women offer paintings and necklaces for sale.

I was paired with Julius for a relaxed afternoon tour, who was very knowledgeable about the sights and history of Nairobi. The giraffe centre is smaller than I expected, although is well worth visiting if you wish to contribute positively toward the conservation of these endangered rothschild giraffes, as well as community education! I loved the Karen B museum and history of her adventures in Kenya. What a wonderful way to end an amazing stay in beautiful Kenya. Thanks Julius!

Like all trips, very expensive. In addition, the hellish traffic in Nairobi takes a lot of time. But what awaits you at your destination is awesome! 1. Karen Blixen Museum: the home of the famous writer of "Beyond Africa". Very well-kept property, including a tour of the entire house. 2. Giraffe Center: You can feed the giraffes, they even "kiss" you. Great souvenir photos! The tour is highly recommended ......
