The ideal way to begin any holiday in Kenya, whether you’re off on safari or heading to the spectacular Indian Coast, this guided sightseeing tour around Nairobi immerses you in the cultures, colonial history and wildlife that makes it one of the most exciting cities in East Africa. You’ll start at the Nairobi National Park on the outskirts of the capital, where you’ll take an unforgettable game drive during which you might see cheetah, buffalo, rhinoceros, leopard and hyena roaming through the acacia bushes. Afterwards, you’ll move on to the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, a must-do when in Nairobi, to learn about the efforts to save orphaned elephants and rhinoceros, and return them to the wild.
The next stop on your Nairobi gift experience is another famous visitor attraction, the Karen Blixen Museum. Blixen’s best-known work, ‘Out of Africa’, chronicles her happy life in Kenya, and the museum is very close to the farmstead the book is set. Moving on to the Giraffe Center, you’ll have the opportunity to feed Rothschild’s giraffe from your hand, as they reach down for a taste with their long black tongues! After lunch at a local restaurant serving a mix of Kenyan and international food, you can browse the stalls at a nearby craft market before the final stop at Bomas of Kenya for a colourful cultural show involving dance, drumming and song. This Kenya gift experience is the perfect tour for anyone with just a short time in Nairobi and wanting to see as many of the city’s highlights as possible in one day.
