DescriptionEscape Nairobi’s bustling city centre and head towards the leafy suburb of Karen. Nairobi has become famous for its traffic – but you’ll get to sit back and take in the interesting sites of local life on this journey through East Africa’s largest city. Hear about Nairobi’s history and modern life from your guide as you travel. First, stop at the Africa Fund for Endangered Wildlife’s famous Giraffe Centre. The centre has pioneered an innovative breeding program that’s helping to grow the population of the endangered Rothschild giraffe in the wild. Learn more about this fascinating animal and the breeding project as you get up close and personal with the giraffes from the centre’s raised walkway. Then, head to David Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage, located on the edge of Nairobi National Park. Since its inception, the project has hand-reared more than 150 baby elephants that have been orphaned in the wild, often due to poaching. The orphanage helps to reintegrate these gorgeous creatures into the wilds of Tsavo National Park in the east of the country. Learn more about this fascinating venture and see the baby elephants being fed by their keepers. After that, return to central Nairobi, where the tour will end around lunchtime, leaving you free for the rest of the afternoon to explore downtown Nairobi on your own.
