Fun, informative trip to Nairobi highlights
Feb 2020 • Solo
I had a great time on my trip with Steven today to the Giraffe Center and Elephant Orphanage! Steven picked me up at my hotel right on time, and afterwards we picked up the other individual on the tour for the day. We got to the Giraffe Center right when it opened, avoiding the larger crowds later in the day. Steven was our own personal cameraman and made sure we got some excellent shots feeding and petting the giraffes! Next we went to the Elephant Orphanage, and again Steven made sure we were some of the first people in to be able to get to a great spot to view the elephants in the shade. We got to hear about the history of the orphanage itself, along with information about each of the 16 elephants current living in the orphanage as they were fed and made their way around the field to bathe and play. After the orphanage, Steven let us put in an order for food while wr made our way to the Kazuri bed factory to learn about the factory's mission to employ local women and give them proper healthcare, etc. After a short tour, we popped back over to the lunch place to eat -- the food was at a good cost and tasted good too! After the day's events, Steven made sure I arrived back at my hotel safely. I would highly recommend Steven and Gracepratt Ecotours Kenya to anyone wanting to explore Nairobi!

Great Half Day!
Jan 2020
What a wonderful day exploring some of the sites of Nairobi! Tour started right on time with a pickup from my hotel. We first went to the Giraffe Center, which was so much fun getting to learn about and feed the giraffes. We then went to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage where Steve, the driver, showed us the best spot to stand for the elephants. What an absolute delight watching the young elephants feed, play and wander around. The reasons for the elephants' orphaned status are tragic but it's so wonderful to see the care and love they're given by the wonderful keepers before being reintroduced to the wild. After Sheldrick, we were taken to the Kazuri Bead Factory where we were given a tour of the factory and told about how the factory works to empower and employ women in the area. We finished our tour off with a nice lunch where we could sit outside and relax. Steven did a great job of showing us around and giving us information about where we were and what we were seeing. He also acted as a personal photographer at times, which was great for those of us traveling solo. Would highly recommend to anyone who has a free day and wants to see these wonderful sites.

Wonderful!
Jan 2020
A great visit to see orphaned elephants and learn about the work of the Sheldrike Foundation. If you don't want to get splashed with mud, avoid standing by the mud hole as the little elephants love to roll in the mud. You, your phone, and anything else you have with you will get splashed.

Its true if you stand near the mud hole you get baptized by the baby elephants using the mud, sometimes its fun for both the elephants and the people. All the same you had a wonderful time at the elephant orphanage. Thank you for reviewing us.

Fantastic Experience!
Jan 2020
This was a fantastic day out... We loved the opportunity to get up close with the Giraffes, and also the baby Elephants too. Both of these are very worthwhile experiences, and it feels good to spend money on organisations that are doing such fantastic work in education, and wildlife protection.

Our tour leader Stephanie was lovely, and we had a great day with her! We felt very well looked after, and she was great fun. It was also nice to have the luxury of a driver to pick us up and drop us off. So it was a stress free and relaxing day, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience! Well worth the money.

Easy and great experience to see elephants and girafees
Jan 2020
I had a limited amount of time so this was a great way to see both giraffes and elephants. I really appreciated how responsive this company was to a last minute reservation and picking me up at my hotel. Francis was an amazing guide and leader of our tour. He picked me up at my hotel door, on time and timed everything just perfectly the whole tour.

He also gave me some tips for upcoming trip locations. He was interested and interesting. Thanks Francis for an amazing day.

Great half day tour!
I had a great half day tour with Francis visiting the giraffe center and elephant orphanage. I was traveling solo and had a spare day in Nairobi. It was a great way to spend half a day.
It was a pleasure to have Francis as my guide he made me feel very welcome and was full of amazing knowledge :)

We had a brilliant day with Francis. He was fantastic in every way - on time, great fun, really knowledgeable and made the experience unforgettable. He even took photos of us with the giraffe and some stops for coffee and shopping which was brilliant. We thoroughly enjoyed our day and we were so glad we booked the trip. Thank you Francis!!

Wow amazing
Nov 2019
Only went to elephant orphanage and certainly wasn’t disappointed. This is a fantastic experience and well worth the trip. The orphanage are doing an amazing job and should be very proud of their work. They recuse mostly due to humans, the rehabilitate the orphanage and reintroduce them back into the wild. Entry is donation and goes back into the orphanage. Didn’t visit giraffe centre as not sure where the money goes or if they intrude back to the wild. However only heard good reports

Beautiful experience kpnuts 12 at the elephant orphanage and sure it is worth taking. When you hear them talk about each Baby elephant,then you can easily tell the love and care which the care takers have towards the orphans. Its good to let you know that the same work is being done at the Giraffe center,the only difference is that the giraffe which are born at the center are the one that are taken to the National Parks after attaining a mature age in fact they even have a program that takes care of schools who cannot afford to travel around and visit these two places by providing transport . The children learn about wild animals. They believe that if you teach children how important wildlife animals are, they will be able to coexist with them. I would therefore encourage you to also visit Giraffe center next time. Thank you very much for such a good review.
