NAIROBI EXCURSIONS

Nairobi City Tour (3hours)
The tour covers the modern city centre, the colourful market, the Railway Museum and the renowned National Museum where there are spellbinding displays of early man, tribal regalia and the flora and fauna of Kenya. A visit to the adjacent snake park is also included. The tour turns to the city centre

Nairobi National Park The tour starts at 2.00pm.
This unique wildlife sanctuary is just a few kilometres from Nairobi’s bustling city centre, but despite its proximity, different species of mammals can be found there, including four of the Big Five. The tour also includes a visit to the animal orphanage at the park gate. The tour returns to the city centre by sundown. Private tours can be organised in the morning.

Karen Blixen & Giraffe Centre (3 hours)
Depart in the morning and afternoon. Drive towards Ngong Hills and pass Ngong Village to the Karen Blixen Museum, for many years her home. Later proceed to the Giraffe Centre to see and feed the famous Rothschild Giraffe and her family.

Carnivore experience (Daily at 12:30 & 7:00 pm)
Nairobi has many restaurants offering a variety of cuisine. We recommend dinner or lunch at the carnivore, which is famous for its succulent stew and barbecue dishes as an excellent complement to a holiday in Kenya, especially as a welcome or a farewell dinner. The price includes transfers to and from the airport.

Bomas of Kenya (2 hours)
A boma is a homestead and just a few kilometres from the city, numerous homesteads reflecting Kenya’s cocktail of cultures have been faithfully re-created for visitors to see traditional village life. But the greatest excitement during the afternoon is the display of traditional dancing, music and song performed in a splendid arena.

Lake Nakuru National Park (1 day)
Lake Nakuru lies in the volcano-strewn Rift Valley, one of the shares of 8 lakes, which stretch the length of Kenya from Tanzania to Ethopia. The 160 kilometres drive from Nairobi passes through highlands farms of the Kikuyu people before descending an escarpment into the dramatic landscape of the Rift. Lunch is taken in Nairobi; a stop is made at Lake Nakuru where tea is served among the fever trees and where bird watchers will be delighted with the fantastic array of bird life.

Amboseli Express (1 day)
Amboseli National Park lies within the shadow of the mighty Kilimanjaro, Africa’s highest mountain. Only nature in all the majesty could create such a backdrop of the wildlife pageant found at Amboseli. Game is seen on much of the route to the park, which crosses ochre plains where Masai tend their cattle in an age-old tradition. Lunch is taken at the lodge in the park and is followed by another game drive where lion, elephant and the splendid cheetah are likely to be seen. Return to Nairobi in good time for dinner.
