The park’s open border on its southeast perimeter allows a corridor for the natural migration of game animals during the seasonal rains.

See a mud or elephants being fed. Walk around the stables that the elephants sleep in at night accompanied by their elephant keepers. The feeding time is from 11am to 12 pm. There after you will head to the Carnivore restaurant for lunch.
Famous for it's succulent steaks, Barbecue dishes and huge variety of game meat. The Carnivore has almost now become one of Nairobi's "musts" and as much a tourist attraction as the National Museum! The Carnivore Based on the Brazilian concept of an open coal fire, the focal point of the main restaurant, an enormous variety of meat, is roasted on huge metal spears and then carved at the tables on to piping hot plates. Fresh salads, unusual side dishes and assorted tasty sauces accompany beef, pork, lamb, goat, sausages, quail, chicken, gazelle, hartebeeste, zebra, wildebeest, and occasionally crocodile . If you have any room left after all these unlimited servings, a variety of puddings are on offer before mugfuls of Kenya coffee herald at the end of the meal.
After lunch we head to the Giraffe Center the headquarter for the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife made famous by 'Daisy Rothschild', a giraffe calf rescued from Soi, on the Western Kenya border. Daisy and her family form only a small part of a herd of these gentle giants, living in a semi wild state at Giraffe Manor. These animals will come to a protecting wall to be fed. Make most use of your visit when you go to the Giraffe center nature trail up until the Gogo river. This is what most people don't get to see and it's a fascinating place to walk in the nature, with bushes on either side and birds giving the most wondrous songs. Reach down to the river and search for giraffes in the wild. The trail will take about 1 hour going up and down in a relaxing pace.
You then drive Karen Blixen's home, "Mbogani House", made famous by the film 'Out of Africa'. It has been restored by the Danish Community of Kenya, and comes under the umbrella of the National Museums of Kenya. Karen Blixen lived in the house from 1917 to 1931 when her farm had to be sold and she left Kenya. Inside the house you can see the books and cuckoo clock which were presented to the museum from the sets of the film. From the garden you can enjoy the magnificent views of the Ngong Hills and at the front of the house look out for the original millstone tables from which she conducted so much of her farm business. Leaving the Museum, drive or walk a short distance to Kazuri Ltd where a team of African women offer paints and necklaces.
