Nairobi National Park Game Drive
Nairobi National Park Kenya’s first-ever National Park and the only Park in the world near a city Centre is a unique and unspoiled wildlife haven within sight of the city’s skyline. Rhino, buffalo, cheetah, zebra, giraffe, lion and plenty of antelopes and gazelles can be seen roaming in this open plains country with a section of highland forest as well as stretches of broken bush country, deep, rocky valleys and gorges with scrub and long grass. Ornithologists catch with over 300 bird species including the Secretary bird, crowned cranes, vultures, peckers and many more.
The Giraffe Center is a wonderful and refreshing experience undertaken during a City excursion. The tour gives a completely up close and personal interaction where guests have the opportunity to view giraffes as well as feed them. There is an impressive variety of bird’s species which can be viewed through the year. Time takes approximately 1 hour.
Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s Orphan’s project, located in a secluded area of the Nairobi National Park, where orphaned baby elephants, rhinos amongst other animals are taken care of by a dedicated team of conservationists. At 1100 Hours, the baby animals are brought from the National Park for a mud-bath at the orphanage, where for an hour you can get close to them and sometimes touch them. You may not feed the animals but will get a chance to view the handlers feeding them.
Karen Blixen Museum is located on the outskirts of Nairobi on Karen road. Its history dates back to 1914, during the First World War, with the arrival of Karen Blixen from Denmark. At the foot of Ngong Hills, Karen Blixen established herself as a farmer. After her departure in 1931, the suburbs retained the commemorative home of Karen.
The house was used during the filming of the famous movie that immortalized Karen Blixen’s book by the same name (‘Out of Africa’). The Museum has beautifully landscaped gardens and an all-encompassing Ngong Hills View. Time takes approximately 1 Hour at most.
Bomas of Kenya Cultural Day Tour Nairobi visits the Bomas of Kenya which offers you “Kenya in a miniature”. It lets you see the wonderful diversity of cultures that make up Kenya. The term Bomas, meaning “homestead”, is displayed on your tour; each represents one of Kenya’s major ethnic groups and is built to the original traditional architecture of an African home as built by the ancestors. Here you will experience the rich culture of Kenya’s 42 different ethnic groups as they live on a day-to-day basis.
This is clearly demonstrated through traditional dances, music, song, and folklore. There is a splendid arena where acrobatic shows are performed.
