George is a fantastic tour guide! He knows the tips to make sure you get close to the elephants, and knows lots of local landmarks and history. Don't miss the bead factory. The jewelry and other items are beautiful and support a worthwhile cause.

This tour is definitely something you do not want to miss. Not only did we enjoy the Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe Center, we enjoyed our tour guide as well, Greoge. Greoge was very knowledgeable about the animal centers and other things to do in Nairobi. He made us feel safe and he had very good customer service skills .

Excellent tour! The whole day was fantastic. Our guide, Shaddie, was full of information and had a delightful personality. 5 stars for him! The elephant orphanage was so interesting and inspirational. I have a deep appreciation for what they are doing to save the orphan elephants. The giraffe center was lots of fun--up close and personal to a giraffe! Lunch was so good--we had the feta cheese with pomegranate seeds and avocado toast, and a beer. The best! THe ceramic bead factory was also very interesting and our tour guide (sorry, I can't remember the name---a young man) was very good and entertaining. I would highly recommend this tour!

We went to the Sheldrick Orphanage and the Giraffe Center on our one free day in Nairobi. Our guide was Sammi who was spectacular! He provided us insight into Kenya on our first day there, he was timely, he got us to where we wanted to go and provided additional information on other sites we may want to see and got us back when we were done. The Orphanage is wonderful. I still think about those precious baby elephants running to get their feeding, esp. given our country's leadership thinks it's okay to murder these beautiful, wonderful creatures. I hope the Sheldrick Foundation continues to do their wonderful work. I miss those elephants every day.

Excellent tour with guide Vincent would recommend

I strongly recommend you to work with perfect wilderness tour.
The driver/guide Shadrack is very experienced, polite and friendly. He told me a lot about Kenya, answered all my questions. Everything was perfect- he was in exact time how it was arranged, called me and found me at the airport. While driving he was showing me each sightseeing we encountered with. After each stop he was wondered whether everything was ok. The tour was beyond my expectations.
Definitely is worth booking.

Both the elephant orphanage and giraffe centre were great. Well worth doing. Our guide Paul was very friendly and flexible. We didn't do any of the optional activities, so it was really more of a half day tour, but well worth it.

The trip was a good day out to see some of Nairobi's animal sites. George was on hand to confirm pickup the morning of the tour and Vincent was an accommodating driver, allowing me to add mamba village in my full day tour for lunch and to see the crocodile feeding, I would say the Full-day tour is what you make of it, in that the Elephant Orphanage and Giraffe Center alone probably wouldn't be enough to make a 'full day', but from my experience the organisers are flexible to allow you to adapt the day meet your requests so perhaps plan your tour beforehand. All in all, a good day out!

Tour was absolutely amazing!!! It was just me on the tour and I was a bit worried about doing it solo to begin with but Shadi was a great guide!!

I would recommend this trip you everyone!!!
