Nairobi National Park, Elephants, Giraffes & Bomas Day Trip

1. Nairobi National Park, Elephants, Giraffes & Bomas Day Trip

After a brief introduction, proceed to Nairobi National Park for an early morning game drive. See more than 100 different species of animals including lions, cheetahs, leopards, giraffes, buffaloes, hippos, rhinos, zebras, gazelles, elands, wildebeests, hyenas and so many more. Next, visit the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. Since its inception, the orphanage has hand-reared more than 150 baby elephants that were orphaned in the wild, often due to poaching. The orphanage helps to reintegrate these gorgeous creatures into the wilds of Tsavo National Park in the east of the country. Learn more about this fascinating venture and see the baby elephants being fed by their keepers. Proceed to the Giraffe Center. The center has been ostensibly set up as a breeding center for the endangered Rothschild giraffe, but now operates conservation/education programs for Kenyan school children. Meet the resident giraffes face-to-face before heading to an enclosed homestead, the Bomas, each one Bomas represents one of Kenya's major ethnic groups. Sit back and enjoy traditional songs and dances showcased by different ethnic groups.
