An amazing time with an awesome guide - the perfect Nairobi day trip!

We had an amazing time on this day trip - and our guide, Paul, made it even better. We got to both the giraffes and the elephants before they opened so were able to spend the most amount of time with both (and Paul even helped us in the elephant orphanage to find the best spot for shade and photos). Along the way, we stopped at a great little roadside gift/coffee shop before finally eating a terrific lunch at Carnivore. Cannot recommend this enough for folks spending time in Nairobi!

Tout s’est bien passé. La visite était conforme à la description. Nous avons commencé par le Girafe Center où nous avons pu nourrir quelques girafes et en apprendre sur l’activité de ce centre. Ensuite, nous avons été au centre David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust pour découvrir l’activité de protection des éléphants orphelins. Ils nous ont expliqué la vie de chaque éléphant présent (13 au total) à ce moment-là. Enfin, nous avons déjeuné au restaurant Carnivore avec une grande variété de viandes et de sauces. Nous avons été ramenés à notre hôtel pour 14h.
