After morning pickup at your hotel between 9:30am and 10am in Nairobi. The Elephant Orphanage is the only one found within the city of Nairobi. Depending on your hotel location it can take 30 minutes to an hour to drive to the orphanage. The feeding time is between 11am and 12pm, so you’ll be picked up at 10am to arrive in time. As you watch the elephants feed and play, learn the stories about each creature from your guide and hear how the orphanage staff interacts with them.
Then proceed to a visit to the Giraffe Centre, headquarters for the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife. Established when a giraffe calf was rescued from the western Kenya border, it features a small portion of a herd living in a semi-wild state at Giraffe Manor. Watch the animals come to a protecting wall to be fed, and make the most use of your visit along a 1-hour nature trail to the Gogo River, where you’ll hear birdsong and possibly see giraffes in the wild.
After visiting the 2 places, you will have a chance of visiting the Utamanduni craft center. The Utamanduni shop has also a cafeteria where you can have lunch. After shopping, you will be driven to the Karen Blixen Musuem and the Kazuri beads for shopping African jewelry made from clay.
Later, you will be driven back to your hotel.

    “An excellent tour with a great guide”
    Margaret our guide was very informative and engaging. The property is in very good order. A lovely venue for weddings too!
    Poor Ms Blixen was badly advised – probably by stupid men!
