Everything went well. The visit was as described. We started with the Giraffe Center where we were able to feed a few giraffes and learn about the activity of this center. Then we went to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust center to find out about the orphan elephant protection activity. They explained to us the life of each elephant present (13 in total) at that time. Finally, we had lunch at the Carnivore restaurant with a wide variety of meats and sauces. We were returned to our hotel for 2pm.

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!
