We can’t be tour operators without traveling, right? Our team went for the Nairobi City Tour!
Nairobi is a diverse and exciting urban setting with many attractions to explore. The tour takes you through some of the most distinct attractions with a skilled and experienced guide that not only ensures your safety, but also navigates efficiently through the high traffic roads.
The Safari started at 7:30 am, at Nairobi town center where the whole team met, had our breakfast and off the journey began. It was a lovely Saturday morning; the sun was out, the skies were clear, we were onto an adventurous day.
A twenty minutes’ drive arrived us at the Nairobi National Park. We received a warm reception by the Masai dancers who sang joyfully with all enthusiasm. We grabbed our tickets and off the safari safari game drive began. Home to the big 4: The Lion, Rhino, Buffalo and Leopard. Our eyes spotted a pack of lions enjoying the morning breeze. The view was spectacular, further ahead we came across a large heard of Impalas grazing. The giraffes, rhinos, zebras, gazelles were also spotted.
Our next stop was at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, this was a truly gratifying and humbling experience that should be at the top of your to-do list. We got introduced to various orphaned baby elephants and had an epic experience with a one on one interaction with them as they got fed their milk and by the way you can adopt one if you want. We witnessed first-hand, how one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness has founded a pioneering conservation organisation for wildlife and habitat protection in East Africa.
A few minutes from the Orphanage and you find yourself at the Giraffe Center in Karen. This is a breeding center for the endangered Rothschild giraffe, a subspecies of the giraffe, only found in the grasslands of East Africa. We got to feed and take photos with the giraffes.
The best way to end an excursion is on a high note and this we did with so much energy. Our destination was the Mamba Village, it’s famous for its Crocodile Farm, hosting over an estimated 70 Nile crocodiles. We got to “interact” with the crocodiles, Masai Ostriches can also be found strutting around and visitors often come into direct personal contact with them when given the opportunity to feed these gallant birds.
