11:00Hrs: Sheldrick Wildlife Elephant Orphanage
Located on the edge of Nairobi National Park, The Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage is a sanctuary which raises orphaned baby elephants and integrates them back in the wild. Every day at 11 am, baby elephants hurtle out of the acacia forest into a muddy watering hole area to meet their keepers for feeding time. For one precious hour, you can watch them from the sidelines before they wander back into the woodlands. The keepers on-site will teach you all about the work of the orphanage, and the importance of their conservation efforts.
12:30Hrs: Lunch at Karen Blixen Coffee Garden
13:45Hrs: Giraffe Centre
The Giraffe Center was first opened in response to the endangered status of the Rothschild giraffe, the population of which had declined, reaching a low of 130 animals in the wild as a result of agricultural practices in their native habitat. Successful fundraising efforts secured money to move four herds of these graceful animals to Lake Nakuru National Park, Nasalot Game Reserve, Mwea Game Reserve and Ruma National Park, and the success of these efforts has increased the population to over 500 individual giraffes in Kenya alone.
15:00Hrs: Bomas of Kenya
Bomas of Kenya is a tourist village in Langata displaying traditional homesteads from 23 of Kenya’s ethnic groups. The cultural center was opened in 1971 by the Kenya Tourist Development Corporation to preserve the ancient traditions of the Kenyan people. The site is also home to a 3,500-capacity auditorium that features more than 30 traditional dances of the different ethnic groups in Kenya.
