Michael was a wonderful guide. He was on time and easy to talk to. He worked very hard to ensure I got the most out of the tour. He was familiar with the park and knew where and when to see the most game. As a result I saw lions, hippos, rhinos,giraffe, water buffalo, ostrich, and hundreds of zebras, antelopes, and gazelles. It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend it.
My trip to Nairobi was fantastic. i had a great time. i went during their raining season which is May-Sep . The weather is good and my tour guide was great
I was the only one on the tour the day I signed up and they sent a driver to my hotel in Nairobi. The driver was courteous and knowledgable and friendly. Since I was the only one, I opted to spend most of the day in the National Park. a few minutes in the Giraffe Center and skipped the museum altogether. I enjoyed the park SO much - we saw lions, rhino, zebra, tons of giraffe and impala and gazelles. We saw baboons, ostriches, buffalo - just about like being on a safari without leaving Nairobi! Incredible wildlife and photo opportunities with them. The giraffe center was a bit of a letdown, but anytime you see wildlife actually in the WILD and then see them in captivity it's going to feel like that... But I loved my outing in Nairobi!
I was on my own for this tour, so Michael was my personal guide for the day, and very personable he was too. I was surprised how few others were at the National Park so even though it is close to the city you really do feel as though you are getting out into the wild. Saw plenty of giraffe, zebra, ostrich, buffalo, rhino, antelope, gazelle, impala and monkeys. I also really enjoyed the Karen Blixen museum, having read 'Out of Africa', and had an informative and enthusiastic guide there. As others have said, the giraffe centre is a brief stop off that I could easily have done without, and the stop off at the 'curio' shop could also be dispensed with. I hate haggling, but also hate seeming rude, so stupidly ended up paying over the odds for a couple of nick-nacks that I could have picked up for half the price at the airport, but I didn't let that spoil my day. If you've just got a day to kill in Nairobi, I reckon you could do far worse than this pleasant and hassle-free tour.
Mostly good girrafe sanctuary overrated
Our driver Michael was polite and very friendly. Despite the Nairobi traffic once we were in the park the only animals we would like to have seen but did not see were Lions. We saw most everything else too numerous to mention, some very close by, and whether this was down to Michael the driver or pure good luck we will never know but we were both very impressed with our first Safari. The Langata giraffe tour is a must 'Daisy' being the star. We were unable to complete the Karen Blix tour due to time constraints so maybe next time! I am unable to attach any of our many photo's as at the time of writing I am back in Africa on another mission.
