On this Nairobi tour, you'll spend almost half the day immersed in natural wonder, from a tour of the giraffe Centre to visiting elephant calves at the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage, it's all within the city limits of Nairobi...how cool is that?!
From here, it's onwards...and upwards (!) as we hit up the Giraffe Centre, where we have an opportunity to interact closely with the beautiful, endangered Rothschild giraffe. It's a truly special experience, one that you likely won't ever forget. After the giraffes, we will be head out for another unique experience of interacting and watching the baby elephants being fed, the David Sheldrick is a heaven for the young elephants that have been orphaned or abandoned in the wild, these beautiful creatures are usually given a second chance in life.
Wildlife spotting certainly works up an appetite, so lunch will be served at a local restaurant where you'll get to sample local cuisine and engage with the locals.
After a day filled with close animal encounters and local experiences, we'll head back to the city Centre where your Nairobi tour will come to a close/transfer to your pick up point
