Nairobi Day Trips


Most visitors only use Nairobi as a hub for a safari experience in the national parks, or a stay in one of the beach resorts along the coast. But I think that's selling Nairobi short. It's a huge cosmopolitan place with a lively cultural scene and lots of interesting people to meet, and it's the only city in the world where you can be in the middle of a full safari park just outside the city centre.

If you have a day (or more) to spend in Nairobi, here are some options for Nairobi tours that will show you the special sides of the city.

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.
