What You Can Expect
Swap your mode of transport to a game drive vehicle and explore, looking out for herbivores such as zebras and gazelles roaming the savannah plains, as well as the lions, leopards and cheetahs for which the park is famous. Learn about the animals and their natural habitat from your guide and gaze out at the rugged plains, set against the skyscrapers of Nairobi in the distance.
Stop for lunch at a local restaurant near the park and enjoy a traditional Kenyan meal with drinks. Refreshed and refueled, continue your tour to Karen Blixen Museum, a short distance away. Named after the author of the Out of Africa novel and Oscar-winning film, the museum is built on the spot of Karen Blixen’s old farm.
Left almost the same as when Karen Blixen lived there, the museum and grounds are meticulously well preserved, and it’s easy to imagine the days when the building was on the site of a thriving coffee farm. Learn all about Karen Blixen and Out of Africa on a 30-minute tour of the museum.
Then, hop back inside your minibus and travel to Langata Giraffe Center, just outside of Nairobi. Founded as a breeding center for the endangered Rothschild Giraffes, the attraction is run by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife. Explore at leisure, admiring and hand-feeding the giraffes. It’s the perfect place to get close-up photos that you might not have been able to capture on safari!
Meet your guide at the pre-arranged point, and then travel back to Nairobi. Your day trip finishes with a drop-off at your central hotel.
The tour was amazing!!! George, our tour guide, was patient - stopping and starting the jeep to suit our photographic needs. The National Park was enormous with plenty of opportunity for us to see the animals in their natural surroundings. Feeding the giraffes was a treat! The Karen Blixem museum provided great insight into the European influence over Kenyan custom and decor. I highly recommend this tour.
Our guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and nice. I enjoyed the National Park as well as the Giraffe Center but could have easily done without the Karen Blixen Museum. We did ask the guide to take us to see something cultural and were taken to the Bomas. They had a professional dance crew recreating traditional tribal dances, initiations, etc. It was very fun and entertaining. I would recommend that over the museum any day!
