Full description
Following early morning pick-up from your hotel in Nairobi, journey for approximately 45 minutes to an animal orphanage in a secluded area of Nairobi National Park. Upon arrival, meet the orphaned baby elephants and other animals that are taken care of by a dedicated team of conservationists. At 11:00, the baby animals are brought from the national park for a mud bath at the orphanage. Get up close to them and benefit from the chance to touch them. You can even watch the handlers feed them during a 1-hour session (advance booking required). Then, listen to a talk about the elephants from the handlers. Go to the Giraffe Centre in the Lang'ata suburb of Nairobi, and get up close to the animals. Learn about the work of the sanctuary, and hand feed the giraffes from a raised observation platform before the return journey to Nairobi where you will get dropped off at your hotel at around 15:00.

Unclear guides

First driver was very uncommunicative. He didn’t explain why we waited almost an hour for other people to show up.

All ran according to plan. Collected from hotel, went directly to giraffe centre, then onto the elephant sanctuary and home.

the Giraffe Center and Elephant Orphanage is nice, the guides are also nice. But the arrangement of Kenya Tours & Safaris is the worst I ever met. I had to wait other person finished the tour in national park until 10:30!!! But the voucher said the begin time is 8:30!!! I wait at the front door of the national park 2 hours and nothing to do. And even worst is, I paid only 2 euro less! Other person have a 8 hours tour paid 66euro, I don't go to the national park but paid 64euro and should all day wait other person for a same group. Is it fair?
