Good morning Ken

Just wanted to write a brief note to say thank you very much for organising our trip, and also to sing Sam's praises.  He was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable - he made us feel very well looked after and was a pleasure to be with for our time on the Mara.  We didn't manage to hit the Big 5 but nevertheless had a fantastic time, and I'm sure will return when we have the opportunity.

DAY TRIPS

NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK
Nairobi National Park is the oldest park in Kenya having been established in 1946. A few kilometres from downtown Nairobi, this game park is truly unique and hosts a wide variety of wildlife. A mini Serengeti during the dry season, it is possible to photograph lion, cheetah, rhino, buffalo, giraffe, and a dozen species of antelope … all within 20 minutes drive of a hotel room!

 

 

 

SHELDRICK'S ANIMAL ORPHANAGE
Daphne Sheldrick has devoted her life to the study of African animals and has perfected techniques for successfully raising orphaned wild animals. Orphaned animals such as rhino, elephant and zebra are raised at her property adjacent to Nairobi National Park until they can be rehabilitated into the wild. Open daily from 1100 – 1200, the Orphanage is an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

 

 

 

LANGATA GIRAFFE CENTRE
A short drive from central Nairobi you can observe and hand-feed Rothschild's giraffe from a raised platform surrounding an information centre. Established as a sanctuary for this endangered species, the Centre is now a popular outing for both tourists and locals, especially school children who are taught about conservation and the need to preserve the wildlife.
Open daily from 9.00am – 5.30pm.

 




KAREN BLIXEN MUSEUM
“Mbogani” or Karen House was the former residence of Karen Blixen, author of the best-selling novel “Out of Africa”. The house was purchased as an estate comprising 6000 acres in 1917 by Bror and Karen Blixen and for some years was run as a coffee plantation. This was her home until a series of personal tragedies forced her to leave Kenya in 1931. It was here that her relationship with Denys Finch-Hatton, a white hunter and adventurer, flourished until his tragic death in a plane crash.
In 1963 the Danish Government bought the property and presented it to the people of Kenya to mark Independence, and was eventually turned into a Museum in 1985.
The Museum is open daily from 9.30am – 6.00pm.

 

LAKE NAIVASHA & HELL'S GATE
Only an hour's drive from Nairobi, Lake Naivasha provides visitors with an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of Kenya's capital. A freshwater lake, Naivasha is host to a wide variety of bird and animal life. The morning can be spent on optional excursions such as walking or cycling in the adjacent Hell's Gate National Park, or a boat ride to Crescent Island. After lunch a visit is made to "Elsamere", the retirement home of Joy Adamson ("Born Free"), where afternoon tea is taken on the lawn with Colobus monkeys providing the entertainment. The tour finishes in Nairobi at 6.00pm.






Note: These tours can be taken separately or combined to form an enjoyable outing for those with a free day in Nairobi.

Prices vary according to number of people.
