A trio of Nairobi’s top attractions

City highlights tour

The essence of  the city highlights tour

Discover three of Nairobi’s most loved attractions on this delightful three-hour excursion. Your journey begins with a short exploration of the Karen Blixen Museum for a glimpse into the fascinating world of this pioneer coffee farmer, who achieved world fame through her highly-acclaimed memoir, “Out of Africa”. She left Africa after a series of personal tragedies and her lovely colonial house has been preserved as a museum.  Set in expansive gardens, the Karen Blixen Museum is an interesting place to wander around.

Your next stop will take you to the renowned Giraffe Centre, where you will be given a rare opportunity to get up close to these gentle giants in this natural sanctuary, which was founded by Jock Leslie-Melville, the Kenyan grandson of a Scottish earl, to protect the endangered Rothschild giraffe.

Here you are able to climb to the top of a platform and stand eye to eye with the giraffes. Feed the giraffes with small pellets or go for a gentle meander on a serene forest trail.

A heart-warming visit to the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage will wrap up your outing. Here you can witness the heroic efforts of the dedicated team who rehabilitate orphaned elephant calves and other vulnerable animals. This extraordinary place plays a pivotal role in protecting the wilderness and offers a beautiful experience, as well as the opportunity to adopt an orphaned elephant.
