Safari Itinerary

Nairobi City Tour – Half day

Embarking on a journey of discovery, your day commences at 8:00 am with a pickup from your Nairobi hotel. Our first destination is the renowned Giraffe Manor, a place that promises not just proximity to these majestic creatures, but also a chance to enrich your understanding of their world.

This tour offers an intimate encounter, allowing you to observe the giraffes up close and personally interact with them. You’ll even have the option to feed them, creating a truly unique and memorable experience.

The Giraffe Center is a testament to the vision of the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.W.), a noble endeavor established in 1979. This non-governmental, non-profit organization was born out of a determination to rescue the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, whose natural habitat had been encroached upon by agriculture and human settlement. With just 130 remaining in the wild, action was imperative. These giraffes were carefully relocated to places like Lake Nakuru National Park, Mwea Game Reserve, Ruma National Park, and Nasalot Game Reserve. Through these efforts, the Rothschild Giraffe population in Kenya has flourished, surpassing 500 individuals.

Following this enriching experience, our journey leads us to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, nestled within the serene embrace of Nairobi National Park. Here, orphaned baby elephants and other vulnerable animals find refuge under the watchful care of devoted conservationists. Open to the public for a single hour each day, the orphanage is a tribute to Daphne Sheldrick’s dedication. Daphne Sheldrick, the wife of the renowned Naturalist David William Sheldrick, founder Warden of Tsavo East National Park, continues to nurture his legacy by ensuring the well-being of these remarkable creatures.

Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of the common questions which our clients ask as they plan for their African safari.

Do i need visa/passport?

Yes! To visit Kenya you will definitely require a passport and a visa. Your passport should have at least 2 blank pages and should be valid for a minimum of 6 months past your arrival date. This is to ensure that its validity does not expire before your safari is over.

There are 3 ways to obtain a tourist visa to Kenya;

  1. Visit a Kenyan embassy and apply
  2. On entry to Kenya you can apply for a landing visa. For a landing visa, you need to present your passport. A visa application form and a landing cad will be provided for you to fill out. You will then be required to pay the visa fee in US dollars, which is 50 USD.
  3. For a Visa to Kenya you can apply only by visiting http://evisa.go.ke/evisa.html
Can my children accompany me during the safaris?

Of course! The most beautiful African safari experiences are had as a family. Your children will enjoy seeing the many animals they only read about in books or watch in the movies.

It will be a memorable experience for them. However, it would help if you continually keep your children in sight, especially when in the bush or in a camping site or lodge. Some camps and lodges are not fenced and wild animals roam around freely. Safari guides, however, are always on the lookout to keep you and your children safe.

Kindly let us know during booking if your children will accompany you so that we can make prior arrangements to make their stay comfortable.

What do you mean by unlimited game drives?

A safari is all about freedom and flexibility in exploring the wild. This is what we give our guests. We give you freedom to exclusive wildlife viewing with no restriction on fuel and mileage.

As long as you are within the designated game drive area and the park’s operational hours you can drive for as long as you want. The game drive area also has to be in accordance to your itinerary. For example, if your itinerary reads ‘explore Maasai Mara National Park’, you can drive within Maasai Mara all day but at no one point can you cross over the Mara River into The Serengeti.

Are there bathrooms in the bush?

Your bathroom needs will catered for throughout the safari. There are several public bathroom facilities around picnic sites, camps, lodges ranger stations, visitor centers and museums.

This being a private safari there might not be any public bathroom facilities in sight. However, you will be given an opportunity to use bush bathrooms when no vehicle can be spotted nearby.

The big safari vehicle will keep you hidden as you go about your business. Bush bathrooms are convenient and you will adapt to them.

What kind of clothing should i bring with me?

For comfort throughout the safari, bring with you light casual clothes. Avoid extreme colors; not too dark (black and dark blue are a no) and not too bright. Try neutral colors.

  • Avoid dark colors like black and dark blue. Recommended safari colors are brown, green, khaki, olive and beige.
