DescriptionAfter getting picked up from your hotel in Nairobi, head to the Giraffe Center, where you can see giraffes living in a semi-wild state. Learn about their behaviors, traits and conservation efforts. You will also get the opportunity to feed these gentle giants. Next, head to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. Take a walk through the center where baby elephants wait to be fed. Watch them play in the water, gargle their milk, and discover each elephant's personal stories. Once the youngest is fed, it's time to feed the 2-3-year-olds, some of whom are old enough to feed themselves. Watch as they hold their giant milk bottles in their trunks and make quick work of several gallons of milk. Your final stop before heading back to Nairobi will be the Kazuri Beads Factory. Get the opportunity to admire the beautiful beads and pottery which have been handcrafted by African women.
