Feed majestic giraffes, see baby elephants, or witness the craftsmanship behind locally-produced beads and pottery. Start your tour with a pickup from your hotel in Nairobi and make your first stop at the Giraffe Center. Admire the creatures as they roam in a semi-wild setting. Learn about conservation efforts and have a chance to feed these gentle giants. Continue to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, a sanctuary for orphan baby elephants. As you wander through the wildlife rehabilitation center, be enchanted by the sight of these playful animals frolicking in the water. Watch as the youngest among them are tenderly fed, followed by the 2-3-year-olds, who are now adept at self-feeding. Marvel at their dexterity as they deftly grasp their colossal milk bottles with their trunks. Conclude your tour by visiting the Kazuri Beads Factory, where you can admire the intricate artistry of the beautiful beads and ceramic pottery, all handcrafted by local women. Choose from different options to include a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum at the foot of the Ngong Hills, the Bomas of Kenya displaying traditional villages belonging to several Kenyan tribes, or a game drive in Nairobi National Park. Afterward, be conveniently transported back to your Nairobi hotel.
