What to Expect

Located just south of the city, Nairobi National Park is Kenya’s first game reserve and the only protected area in the world that sits so close to a nation’s capital. Visitors to the vast wildlife park are likely to spot black rhinos, lions, giraffe, and zebra, as well as some 400 bird species.

A pioneering facility for the protection and rehabilitation of black rhinos and African elephants, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust saves injured and orphaned animals from the wild and rehabilitates them for a return to their natural habitats. This nonprofit park was founded in 1977 and operates within Nairobi National Park.

This centre, which protects the highly endangered Rothschild’s giraffe, combines serious conservation with enjoyable activities. You can observe, hand-feed or even kiss one of the giraffes from a raised wooden structure, which is quite an experience. You may also spot warthogs snuffling about in the mud, and there’s an interesting self-guided forest walk through the adjacent Gogo River Bird Sanctuary.

  • Baby elephants at DWST
  • Four of the Big Five at the Nairobi National Park
  • Rothschild’s Giraffes at the A.F.E.W
  • Baby rhinos at the DWST
  • Hundreds of mammals and birds at the Nairobi National park

Our guide will pick you from from your City hotel or the Jomo Kenyatta airport at 5.45 a.m. and drive to the Nairobi National Park. The Nairobi National park is home to 4 of Africa’s “Big five”, that is the lion, rhino, leopard and the buffalo. This park has a large population of the rare and endangered black rhino. Other herbivores and carnivores inhabit this park. You will see giraffes, warthogs, impalas,dik diks, elands, zebras,hippos etc many different types of birds. Have a four hour tour of the park until 10.30 a.m when you depart the park and drive to the adjacent  David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Karen for the 11.00 a.m to 12.00 noon visit.

Lunch will be at the Tamambo restaurant. After lunch, proceed to the neighbouring Kazuri beads factory, KAZURI, which means “small and beautiful” in Swahili, began in 1975 as a tiny workshop experimenting on making handmade beads. The factory is located in what used to be part of the Karen Blixen Estate (of the Academy Award winning film “Out of Africa” fame.

Later at 3.00 p.m, drive to the AFEW, or other known as Giraffe center. The Giraffe Centre was started by Jock Leslie-Melville, the Kenyan grandson of a Scottish Earl, when he and his wife Betty captured a baby giraffe to start a programme of breeding giraffe in captivity at their home in Langata – home of the present centre. Since then the programme has had huge success, resulting in the introduction of several breeding pairs of the endangered Rothschild Giraffe into Kenyan national parks.

Depart the Giraffe center at 4.30 p.m. and transfer back to your city hotel or the Jomo Kenyatta airport.

Price per person: US $: US $ 195.00

    Hi,
    I am sending you this email as I used your company to go on safari on the 22nd July 2019.

    I went on a one day Nairobi National Park and Sheldrick Elephants safari and would like to thank you for an excellent day. I would also like to point out that we were truly impressed with the driver that you provided for us, Francis. He had an amazing knowledge of both the animals and all of the local area, and his friendliness made the day superb. I would highly recommend that you continue to use him as a driver for your company, as because of the brilliant day that he gave us, I will definitely be encouraging any of my friends and family members who want to go on safari to use your company.

    Thanks again, Karen Mounfield
