Nairobi; fabled, cosmopolitan, diverse.
We have put together the best day you can spend in Nairobi so you can begin exploring straight away, no trawling Google, no worrying about negotiating and getting lost with taxi drivers, no hit-or-miss restaurant. It’s just all our knowledge of this incredible city crammed into one awesome day…
You’ll be picked up from our hotel in Nairobi to head over to the Giraffe Centre where you can meet, feed and, well, kiss, these majestic animals. It really is a wonderful way to kick off your time in Kenya. You’ll learn all about the Rothschild Giraffe and the conservation efforts that have saved and grown the population on.
Now you are having a morning of wildlife - let’s keep that going by heading to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage where you will be welcomed by a big herd of baby elephants right in time for feeding!
Nearby, is a culinary experience like no other. Carnivore is regularly voted in the Top 50 restaurants in the world - an all you can eat Nyama Chora (Roast Meat) where everything from your standard Beef and Lamb to Ostrich and Bull’s Testicles will be offered to you. We will take you there - but the bill is on you (c$40). Gourmandise yourself!
Nairobi is home to the the only city-based National Park in the world. With wide open grass plains and backdrop of the city scrapers, scattered acacia bush play host to a wide variety of wildlife including the endangered black rhino, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffaloes, giraffes and diverse birdlife with over 400 species recorded. You’ll be spending an afternoon here until sundown, before being whisked back to your hotel for the evening.
