Overview

This excursion will provide an  opportunity for  personal interaction where you view giraffes with an option of feeding  them.

What You Can Expect

The giraffe centre is a close up and learning  tour while in Nairobi.

The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.W.) also known as the Giraffe Centre owners are the idea behind this non-governmental, non-profit organisation 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 late famous Naturalist, David William Sheldrick, who was the founder Warden of Tsavo East national park

At 11:00am, 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 shall have an opportunity to view the handlers feeding them.

There is a  private viewing session in the afternoon of each day for foster parents and allows you to see the animals in private where you may interact with them- this requires advance booking.

There is a keeper who will give a talk about the baby elephants origin and progress. 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
