Nairobi National Park, Giraffe Centre and David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage Combined Excursion
Three exciting activities all rolled into one spectacular day!
You will begin your day with an early morning safari at Nairobi National Park. This is the only wildlife park located within the boundaries of a capital city. It is one of the most successful rhino sanctuaries in Kenya and one of only a few places left in the world where visitors are virtually guaranteed a sighting of the critically endangered eastern black rhino. The park’s home predators include lions, leopards, cheetah and hyena; while herbivores range from the Maasai giraffe to Coke’s hartebeest, eland, waterbuck, impalas and over 400 birds species.
Next it is off to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. This is the first and most successful elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program in the world. Upon arrival, visitors are escorted to a small viewing area centered on a muddy watering hole. A few moments later, much like a sports team marching out onto the field, the animal handlers come in alongside a dozen or so baby elephants. You will witness the bottle feeding of these baby elephants and see how they are fed.
After a quick stop for lunch (not included in the price), it is on to Giraffe Centre. The Giraffe Centre is the creation of the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (A.F.E.W. Kenya), a Kenyan non-profit organization. Here you will have the opportunity to learn about giraffes while being able to interact with them and feed them.
Hotel pick-up is approximately 5:30am. You will be returned to your hotel at around 5pm.
