We enjoyed this day of activities immensely, starting with the national park we were surprised at how many animals we saw, including a rhino. The elephant orphanage was interesting, great seeing the successful Kenyan conservation and education efforts in action. The baby elephants has such characters and we enjoyed watching them feeding and playing. The giraffe center was fun, we fed some greedy giraffes but also learnt much about these interesting creatures. We didnt end up going to Karen Blixen, instead went for lunch with our guide at a local recommendation which did some of the tastiest Kenyan food we had all trip. Our guide was great, had many laughs with hin throughout the day. He was very engaging and informed on all the places we visited as well as giving us an insight into Kenyan life. Highly recommend having a day in Nairobi with him to see the sights and learn about Kenya.

Fabulous trip and guide
When I planned this trip I had no expectations, no one I knew had ever been, it was a clean slate. Im having the time of my life and my safari hasnt even started yet. The people are wonderful, and not just because its their business to be polite. I booked this tour because I had scheduled a few extra days in Nairobi before my safari to the Maasai Mara and this seemed to hit all the high points and was an efficient use of time. The driver Douglas was terrific, very helpful, informative and we had a very small group of 3. I had a wonderful day and would do it again.
It was excellent. Very good driver and listen to the customers proportion.
It was a very good tour. I was picked up at my hotel at 6:30 am and I was back to my hotel by 3 pm. Admission fee to the 4 facilities is not included. A credit card is needed for the Nairobi National Park. Cash can be used at the other three facilities. Our driver/guide was friendly and spoke English quite well.
We spent 3 hours in the Nairobi National Park. I was impressed with the variety of wildlife encountered which included lions, zebras, rhinos, water buffaloes, ostriches, wildebeests, gazelles, warthogs, hippos, and various types of birds.
We spent one hour at the Elephant Orphanage and saw plenty of baby elephants.
We spent one hour at the Giraffe Center where we fed the giraffes by hand and learned about the three different types of giraffes.
We also spent about an hour at the Karen Blixen Museum which gave a glimpse into life during colonial Kenya.
Amazing tour in Nairobi National Park. One thing to know the entrances tickets are not included, approximativly 70 dollars but the driver picked me at hotel at 7AM and returned at the hotel at 7PM. Great experience close to Nairobi, you will find wildlife
I was very fortunate to have such a fantastic tour guide called Douglas. He really helped make this day tour special for me by not only taking me to the places booked on the tour, but also a fantastic gift shop and an amazing coffee shop where i made a connection with the owner.
Douglas was accompanied by his apprentice called Patricia. They were engaging, funny and also took an interest in me as a person. At no point did I feel like a customer, I was made to feel like a friend. The tour its self was incredible, from the national park, seeing lions straight after a hunt, to watching the orphaned elephants play and feed, to feeding giraffes and holding a baby crocodile. However my day was completed by watching the traditional dancing at the Bomas. They even got me on stage for a few moments during their dance.
It was an unbelievable day, worth every penny.
Thank you Douglas and Patricia.
My tour guide went out of his way to ensure I had an amazing experience. Highly recommended! Highly enjoyable.
Our brief visit to Kenya's highlight was definitely this full day tour with our excellent and patient guide Douglas!
Learned so much about the country, the animals we saw-- and we were lucky as we saw basically every species in the Nairobi park, great! In addition, both the visits to the orphaned elefant care center and the giraffe center were extremely memorable and emotionally touching. And lastly, the Karen Blixen house-- the real lived-in-house-- was a special treat! Douglas was knowledgeable and patient thru it all, waiting patiently for us to gift shop on the side, and got us safely back to the hotel late in the afternoon. All in all, a fantastic day.
A very fun day filled with activities. Douglas was very friendly and really made an effort to make the day as good as possible. If you only have one day, I strongly recommend this tour as you get to many different things and see a lot!
