Nairobi Day Excursions
David Shedlrick Wildlife
This is an orphanage for
Elephant and Rhinos Calves from all over Kenya. It was
founded and is still managed by Daphne Sheldrick, the
widow of the best known Game Warden, David Sheldrick.
The young calves which are orphaned by poaching from
various Parks are brought here and nursed until they are
believed to be out of danger then released back to
various parks to rejoin their colleagues. The visit is
done during the feeding hours which fall between 11:00am
to Noon every other day. There is no park fee but only
your humble contributions to the trust.
Giraffe Centre And Karen Blixen
Nairobi Giraffe Center is only 15kms from the City and was founded in 1978 to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe. This is the only place where you can go as near as feeding the Giraffe from your palm. On the adjacent is Karen Blixen Museum, the farm house where the Author of the book “Out of Africa” lived. It is also the same place where the famous movie “Out of Africa” was shot.
This is the newest of all the
excursions in Nairobi. The major attraction here are the
Crocodiles and Ostrich farms. The clients will enjoy to
see the African Crocodlie at a close range. There's also
an artificial river with fish which is really
attractive. You can enjoy a boat or Horse ride before
you settle for a buffet lunch or dinner.
Carnivore restaurant lunch / dinner
Guaranteed daily at lunch and
dinner, Nairobi has many restaurant offering varieties
of cuisine. We recommend a dinner or lunch at the unique
Carnivore Restaurant which is famous for the succulent
barbeque dishes of Game Meat as an excellent compliment
after holiday in Kenya; especially as an excellent
welcome or farewell dinner. The restaurant also offers
Vegetarian menu. Don’t forget the Tamarind Restaurant
which is a sister to Carnivore and serves Sea Food. Do
not wait to go to the Coast to enjoy a plate of Lobster
Fish or a dish of Crab you can get the same in Nairobi
in the City Centre.
Bomas of Kenya
A Bomas means a village, thus
Bomas of Kenya means literally villages of Kenya. Kenya
is a tribal society with over 42 tribes. The Government
thought it wise to set up a place with traditional set
up homesteads representing the different tribal regions.
This homestead depicts different cultures with Guides to
tell the history. Next to it, visit to the auditorium
where you will be entertained by different tribal
cultural troops until 06:00pm.
Nairobi National Park
Nairobi is the only City in
the whole World that boasts of a National Park next to
its door step. Nairobi National Park is 15kms away from
the City Centre and despite this proximity, there are
many species of mammals including 4 of the Big Five. The
best time to visit the park is early in the morning or
late afternoon everyday.
