What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel or at the Nairobi airport for transfer to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an animal conservation site that’s just outside Nairobi National Park. Learn about on-site conservation efforts, such as how orphaned elephants and rhinos are prepared for life in the wild. Next, head to Giraffe Manor, where you have the option to meet giraffes and feed them by hand. From there, continue to the Karen Blixen Museum, former home of the Danish author and coffee farmer who wrote 'Out of Africa.' With furniture and décor that date back to the early 20th century, the house is a fascinating glimpse into Kenya’s past. Following your time at the Karen Blixen Museum, the tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.

I had a great experience. Eric (the driver) came to pick me up early. He provided a lot of information during the tour. He even helped me negotiate some prices with some artists and sellers. It went really well.

Dear guillaumeb219, Thank you very much for booking our tour and submitting such an elaborate review about your experience . we are glad you recon the tour was nice and guide was a nice person, however at some point you should know where you book a joining tour it happens some participants have their ow interests and it is somehow hard for the guide to fully control them. with the crazy traffic in Nairobi city ,some times it is delayed for pick up due to your own location and proximity to the starting point 30 minute minus or plus is due to this unavoidable logistical arrangements. we will rectify areas of concern and be more cautious in trimmings so that it does not take long as you have pointed out .
