Stay on the lookout for many species of game animals, including black rhinos, lions, leopards, cheetahs, hyenas, buffalo, giraffes, zebras, and wildebeest, as well as countless species of wild birds. The park’s open border on its southeast perimeter allows a corridor for the natural migration of game animals during the seasonal rains.

I was paired with Julius for a relaxed afternoon tour, who was very knowledgeable about the sights and history of Nairobi. The giraffe centre is smaller than I expected, although is well worth visiting if you wish to contribute positively toward the conservation of these endangered rothschild giraffes, as well as community education! I loved the Karen B museum and history of her adventures in Kenya. What a wonderful way to end an amazing stay in beautiful Kenya. Thanks Julius!

Experience was ahmazing…my guide Edwin is the best guide ever. I recommend this tour to everyone who visits Kenya

Claudia was so amazing, giving me information and helping me throughout. She was a perfect guide

My Guide Julius was great. He knows so much about Karen and the Giraffes. I really enjoyed it.

We enjoyed the activities on this tour. The lunch stop was a very welcome unexpected bonus!
