Duration: 5 hours
Overview

This tour visits the Giraffe Manor and David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust: 

You are picked up from your Nairobi hotel for a drive to the Giraffe centre. The giraffe centre is a close-up and learning tour while in Nairobi. 

The tour provides an opportunity for personal interaction where you view giraffes with an option of feeding them. The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.W.) also known as the Giraffe Center owners are the idea behind this non-governmental, non-profit organization founded in 1979. 

This successful idea was a noble endeavour to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe which had lost its natural habitat to agriculture and human settlement. There were only 130 left in the wild. 

The giraffes were moved to Lake Nakuru National Park, Mwea Game Reserve, Ruma National Park and Nasalot Game Reserve. The Rothschild Giraffe population in Kenya has to date increased to more than 500. 

Later proceed to the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage located in a secluded area of the Nairobi national park. 

Here-orphaned baby elephants and other animals are taken care of by a dedicated team of conservationists. The elephant orphanage is open to the public one hour a day. 

It is run by Daphne Sheldrick, the wife of the famous late Naturalist, David William Sheldrick, who was the founder Warden of Tsavo East national park. At 11:00 am, the baby animals are brought from the national park for a mud-bath at the orphanage-for an hour. 

You can get close to them and sometimes touch them. You will also have an opportunity to view the handlers feeding them. 

There is a private viewing session every afternoon for foster parents which allows you to see the animals in private and you may interact with them; this requires advance booking. 

There is a keeper who will give a talk about the baby elephant’s origin and progress. You can get really close to the elephants. The orphanage also takes in rhinos. If lucky you will get the chance to see a young rhino. 

Later transfer back to your Nairobi hotel
