My Guide George was fabulous. The day wasn't quite a full day. But he offer me extras. He had great knowledge and know how on Nairobi and the area. He even managed to get me to the front to see the elephant.

It was a nice quick and comprehensive tour of 2 major attractions of Nairobi. My guide/driver Santa was fun and friendly. He knew exactly where to make me stand for Elephant Orphanage to to get the best view in the house. Thank you Santa! I had also booked airport transfer with the same company and he was ready before time even though it was late at night. I feel this tour can be done as a half day tour too or in reduced time.

Hello Avrin Thank you very much for reviewing on our company ,we truly appreciate it that the tour suited you best and that the transfer was successful .The elephant orphanage and giraffe center are surely an unmissable spots to visit .Thank you for also recommending Santa our guide he is surely one of the best among our staff ,he's well presented punctual friendly courteous and always comes in handy especially since your flight was at 2:00am .The tour can be customized to half day upon your request and if you tell your driver since some travellers would prefer it in full day .Otherwise you were part of this incredible days and we are really happy you enjoyed every bit .Karibu Tena!!!!! which means welcome once again

Our trip to the orphange and giraffe centre was amazing ! Was one of the most special days of our lives. The work that both places do for animals is exceptional. Our guide Victor was brilliant. Picking us up a little bit earlier to make sure we beat the traffic and have a good place to view the elephants at the orphange. All the best Krisztina and James.

We had a great time and our guide was very helpful. He gave us the "inside knowledge" of where to stand for the best view of the elephants and was flexible with the itinerary. Vehicle used was a little old but got us there and back safely.

Our driver Paul was excellent and very knowledgeable able the parts of the city he drove us through. He made sure that we visited the giraffe sanctuary first to beat the post elephant orphanage crowds which was great and we even had extra time to fit in the Karen Blixen Museum (although we did then have to pay that entrance fee ourselves since that wasn't part of our original package). Wonderful experience!

The tour was amazing and please be ready to get up close and personal with the baby elephants! Please wear something that you dont mind getting dirty because you will be able to per them and they are usually covered in dirt. Also don't be afraid to kiss the giraffe, it's not that scary. You will also stop at the bead factory with an amazing tour and products for purchase. Alfred was my guide and driver for the day and he was amazing. I recommend this tour to anyone who has a free day in Nairobi.

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.
