    Overall, I enjoyed this tour. However, at almost $100/person, it is very overpriced. It should be 1/2 that amount, at best. Our guide arrived over 2 hours late, so we were already tired and a bit frustrated by the time we got started. We enjoyed all of the sites though, especially the Karen Blixen Museum and Giraffe Center. The Elephant Orphanage was a bit dull. Our guide was nice and kept us moving along from one site to the next.

    This was an excellent comprehensive day trip, highly recommend.

    This tour was my introduction to African animals prior to doing an overland tour. I was blown away by the animals and how close you could get to them in all locations. The elephant orphanage was fabulous and the baby elephants were very cheeky - spraying muddy water everywhere even over the spectators! I skipped the Karen Blixen Museum in favour of Bomas of Kenya which I loved. Those who went to the museum were not too impressed so I was glad I chose Bomas!

    This was such a fun day! I enjoyed the Giraffe Center and Elephant Orphanage the most. You get to see a lot of major sights in Nairobi in a short period of time, which was great! Also, our driver/tour guide was incredible -- he was extremely accommodating. He also assisted with getting to my final destination on time. I would highly recommend this tour!

    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

  • 11-Feb-2018

    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.

  • 08-Nov-2017

    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.
