Nairobi City – Short Excursions
Following your flight our staff will greet you at the airport and load your bags for transfer to the hotel or for the Nairobi City tour or short excursion. Some of the possible optional excursions include: visit to the Botanical garden, National Archives, Tour of Downtown Nairobi, National Museum/Snake Park, Giraffe Center, Kazuri Shop, Bomas Cultural Center of Kenya, David Sheldricks Elephants Orphanage, or to the Nairobi National Park, the only national park in world within the vicinity of a city (7km from the city center).
At Nairobi National Park, the game drive takes maximum 4hrs to cover the whole park. Here we have four out of the big five (lion, buffalo, leopard and rhino) as well as other wild animals that include the giraffe, gazelles, elands, zebras, hyena, wildebeest, cheetah and another 100 species of mammals. The Park is also home to over 400 migratory birds and endemic birds species.
A visit to the Elephants Orphanage will be the highlight of you day as you meet them while they are playing and being fed. These baby elephants have been orphaned due to many reasons like hash weather conditions, human wildlife conflicts and poaching. This is only open for visitors at 11am-12pmas a one hour session.
