    We were able to book this trip last minute, about 30 hours in advance. The communication was great, even with the time being so limited to have everything arranged. Our guide was extremely kind, patient and professional. He made sure we arrived on time to be in front of the line and skip any queues. Highly recommend! I’m very sorry to have forgotten the name of our guide, because I wanted to mention him personally. Our group was very small, making the experience very private and relax; beside my boyfriend and I we were with 2 other people only.

    Nur empfehlenswert super Führung. War sehr nett und hat sich sehr viel Zeit genommen da wir noch ein spezielles Nilpferd als Souvenir gesucht haben hat er mit uns 4 Läden aufgesucht bis wir das gefunden hatten was wir gesucht hatten. Ist auf unsere Wünsche perfekt eingegangen und konnte uns auch noch einiges zu Nairobi erzählen. Lieben Dank dafür noch einmal

    Very good guide, safe, on time at the meeting point The guide gave us good information and took photos of us while we were with the elephants.

    Both shows very nice .Best was while the giraffes kiss us ! Tip: leave the elephant show 10 mins earlier than the end and run to the giraffes show ,otherwise it will be difficult even to make pics !

    Get up close and personal with the giraffes. I loved the giraffe kiss. The baby elephants are playful and so cute. Be sure to get there early enough to stand right by the fence so you can touch them.

    I was in Nairobi for a business trip and wanted to use my free Saturday to explore Nairobi. A colleague mentioned that I could feed giraffes, and I found Cruzeiro through Trip Advisor. I booked the combined tour of the elephant orphanage and giraffe center just two days in advance. I called Cruzeiro to confirm my appointment, and the coordinator was very helpful. Julius was my tour guide. He arrived 30 minutes before our agreed meeting time to ensure he wouldn't be late. We started with the elephant orphanage, where Julius made sure I was well positioned to be near the baby elephants for great photos and a few petting opportunities. We left the orphanage slightly before the show was over to beat the crowds, which was a wise choice. We reached the giraffe center before it got crowded (and before the giraffes had eaten their fill). Julius showed me how to properly feed the giraffes and took a few photos and videos for me as well. We ended the tour with (an optional) trip to a local curio market. All in all, it was a great experience and well worth the money of paying a tour guide to make sure I got the maximum value from the day.

    Great visit to see orphan elephant babies and giraffe up close and personal. Get there early to avoid queues and leave elephants early to get into giraffes without long queues!

    Started off the day with a visit to the Elephant Orphanage , where we fed the baby elephants, they are surprisingly gentle animals. However the Elephant orphanage is strict with time and mostly open in the morning between 9 - 11 for one hour. After a brief stop over at Galleria at the Bomas roundabout for lunch at Artcaffe we then proceeded to Giraffe Center for the afternoon feeding time for the Giraffes; a most amazing and unforgettable experience. be careful though when taking pictures especially selfies. The Children loved it ....

    The tour provider was Cruzeiro Safaris and the driver guide was Timothy. We called and extended the booking to also include an afternoon game drive in Nairobi National Park. So, Cruzeiro Safaris was good when I called and extended the booking at the published rate, to also include the afternoon. Timothy was a good driver, but was not very knowledgeable about the Elephant Orphanage or Giraffe Center....the good news is that both of those facilities has a speaker that gives you the background. Where Timothy excelled was on the game drives. He had a good eye for spotting the animals, was on the phone and talking with the other drivers regarding where the animals were at, so we got to see lions, white rhinos, Masai giraffes, common zebras, cape buffalo, ostriches, impala, elan, and hartebeasts. The only downside to the day was the vehicle, while very much enjoyed the roof that opened up, so could stand and see animals, BUT the aircon did not work, so there was times in the morning when driving that had to have windows open to get air in the van.
