Nairobi National Park Safari

The Nairobi National Park is well known for being 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.

The park also hosts the annual Great Migration of wildebeest and zebra, who move in and out of the park via the Kitengela migration corridor. During the wet season, they move south to the Athi-Kapiti plains to graze; and in the dry season, they return to the park to take advantage of permanent water sources built into the banks of the Mbagathi River. The river is also home to hippos and Nile crocodiles, and attracts many different birds.

During the safari you will learn about the animals, their habitats, and the conservation efforts related to their ongoing care and preservation. Bring your sun protection and your camera for this “wild” adventure!

You can schedule your safari for either early in the morning or late afternoon depending on your convenience. Just after sunrise and just before sunset are the best times for spotting wildlife since this is when they tend to be most active. This safari takes approximately four hours.

David Sheldrick Baby Elephant Orphanage

David Sheldrick is best known for his Orphans’ Project, 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.

Then while the elephants play, the keepers talk about each individual orphan and its personal stories. Explanations are also given about the broader picture of the orphan’s project and some of the other projects in which the trust is involved. There’s also the opportunity to ‘adopt’ one of the elephants. For those who do, there’s a chance to visit when your elephant returns to the stockades around 5pm every evening.

The viewing of the baby elephants takes place daily from 11am to 12pm. Hotel pick-up and drop off is provided.

Safari Cat Dancers at Nyama Choma Ranch (Barbeque)

Essentially Kenyan in both atmosphere and cuisine, the Nyama Choma Ranch offers a stunning selection of roasted barbecued meats accompanied with jacket potatoes, crispy salads, and tasty dips. Choose from prime Kenyan steak, succulent chicken, traditionally roasted mutton… and sink your teeth into a variety of meats (plenty of vegetarian options too!).

After dinner, the entertainment begins. Rare, wild, exotic, captivating, and hybrid dance are among the expressions used when describing the Safari Cats Dancers and Acrobats. It is a kaleidoscope of color, acrobatics, and raw excitement. The fabulous Safari Cats Dancers and Acrobats is a team of professionally trained and choreographed dancers who perform a colorful fusion of African cultural and classic dance featuring some spectacular acrobatics and drumming.

Hotel pick-up is approximately 6pm. You will be returned to your hotel at around 10pm.

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.
