Itinerary

Day 1: Nairobi Arrival

Pick up upon arrival and then proceed to the Elephant Orphanage or Baby elephant Sheldrick Farm. This is the place where we have an orphanage baby elephant that has been rescued from our National parks and game reserves. Some of these elephants are as a result of poaching or the natural death of their mothers, or sometimes they are left by the family after falling either in a pit or valley where our KWS rangers save them from. Some have evidence of poaching as they have marks on their bodies indicating that they might have been victims of the vise. Thereafter proceed to the Giraffe center where we have endangered giraffes which are taken care of before they are introduced to the parks. After the two visits proceed to the hotel and relax for the remaining hours before embarking on safari the following day.
