Our driver Paul was so nice and accommodating!! He explained all the things we passed by and made our first day in Nairobi unforgettable. I wholeheartedly recommend this activity and, if you can, ask for Paul to be your driver. He'll make this trip as relaxing and enjoyable as possible!

I had the chance to have Sami as my tour guide and the experience couldn’t have been better! Sami is really knowledgeable, answered all my questions and made sure I had the best experience: we went to the giraffe center a bit after everyone else so I had the giraffes for myself! Definitely recommended!
