About this trip

  “Africa changes you forever, like nowhere on earth. Once you have been there, you will never be the same. But how do you begin to describe its magic to someone who has never felt it? How can you explain the fascination of this vast, dusty continent, whose oldest roads are elephant paths? Could it be because Africa is the place of all our beginnings, the cradle of mankind, where our species first stood upright on the savannahs of long ago?”

* Brian Jackman (British journalist and author, best known for his interest in wildlife, especially in Africa)

Itinerary

Day 1-3: Nairobi
Elephant and Giraffe Orphanage & vist Karen Blixen Museum

Area Overview

Nairobi is the capital of Kenya and East Africa’s most cosmopolitan city, with a vibrant population of 4.5 million. Unique to the city is the proximity of Nairobi National Park, a true wilderness area juxtaposed against the larger urban metropolis. It is the only national park like it in the world and a real embodiment of the human-wildlife conflicts that challenge many African communities who must learn to cohabitate with wildlife on their doorstep.

Nairobi National Park is one of the best places in Africa to see rhinos and also has a healthy population of lions, leopards, cheetahs, and plains game like giraffes and antelopes. Other attractions include the Karen Blixen Museum, the Giraffe Center, Daphne Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage, a visit to a tea farm, and shopping for local crafts and trinkets. There are some great local and cross-cultural restaurants to explore, from roadside food stalls to local nyama choma (barbecue joints) to five-star dining establishments.


The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust

Founded in 1977 by Dr. Dame Daphne Sheldrick DBE, in memory of her late husband, famous naturalist and founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park, David Leslie William Sheldrick MBE, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust claims a rich and deeply rooted family history in wildlife and conservation. The Nairobi Nursery is open between 11am-12pm to the public, to give people the opportunity to meet these amazing creatures. Entry fees are a donation to the Trust.


Giraffe Center

The Giraffe Centre is the creation of the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (A.F.E.W. Kenya), a Kenyan non-profit organization. The main purpose is to educate Kenyan school children and youth on their country’s wildlife and environment, as well as give local and international visitors an opportunity to come into close contact with the world’s tallest species, the giraffe. The center is home to the endangered Rosthchilds Giraffe and visitors can get up close and personal with them! Entry fees are $15 per adult and $7.50 per child.


Karen Blixen Museum

Karen Blixen Museum was once the centerpiece of a farm at the foot of the Ngong Hills owned by Danish Author Karen and her Swedish Husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke. Located 10km from the city center, the Museum belongs to a different time period in the history of Kenya. The farmhouse gained international fame with the release of the movie ‘Out of Africa’ an Oscar-winning film based on Karen’s autobiography by the same title.


Shopping

There are a variety of different shopping areas all over Nairobi. The most popular area is in Karen where you can find Utumanduni, House of Treasures, and Langata Link Shops.

Utumanduni is an emporium of handcrafted artifacts, fashion, accessories, homeware, beauty products, antiques, and more, Utamaduni is a one-stop shop for exquisite products proudly made here in Kenya and across the African continent. Choosing to buy an item online or in-store, you are choosing to support small businesses, grassroots organizations, and vulnerable communities.


Eat

Nairobi’s culinary scene has been on an upward trajectory in recent years, with new eateries, cafes, and bars popping up almost weekly. A metropolitan city with a diverse restaurant culture, Nairobi’s best dining experiences run from roadside food stalls to five-star dining establishments. Don’t miss local specialties such as nyama choma (grilled meat, usually goat) and ugali, not to mention African-inspired gourmet burgers! Nairobi’s beautiful year-round weather means this is a prime destination for al fresco dining on rooftops, balconies, and gardens. 

The most popular restaurants include The Talisman, Embark, Tamarind Nairobi, The Haandi (also with a London branch) and for the meat-eaters out there, the world-famous Carnivore is a must dine!

We are a company without borders, we produce events and VIP trips worldwide. From Moscow to Johannesburg, New York to Shanghai, we can create the experience of a lifetime. If you can dream it, we can make it happen. We began official operations in January 2011, but the Limitless Planet concept was created in a tent while on safari in Masai Mara, Kenya by founder, Shannon Lichti, in 2004. Since, it has been a long road that has taken all seven continents. We have created relationships that will benefit our clients for a longtime to come.

This trip was everything and more we wanted it to be. The experience was priceless. Everything planned was perfect. We truly felt we had the opportunity to immerse ourselves in the Cuban culture and get to know the people. Staying in the heart of Havana was so cool and fun. But, we also had the opportunity to see the countryside when we went to Ernest Hemingways home and to Viñales to the tobacco farm and our delicious lunch. We learned so much and can’t wait to go back. Our leaders from Limitless Planet -Hailey and Christian, and our Cuban guide, Abel, made this trip absolutely outstanding. I will be booking another adventure with a Limitless Planet .

Perfect island getaway! Isla Holbox is such a gem - lots of boutique hotels, pretty beaches, and fantastic food options in a fun town from local fare to the more fancy options. All flawlessly planned! Thank you, LP!

It was the adventure of a lifetime. Amazing places & people, a direct experience with the Past between the camel caravan into the Sahara, tea with a nomad family, dinner & dancing with a Medina family, and walking through Roman ruins at their actual site. Our guide, Mohammed, was wonderful & the other group members were fun & interesting people. I highly recommend Limitless Planet and Shannon Lichti for amazing travel at unbelievably reasonable prices. Thanks so much!
