Overview
Spend a wonderful half day with giraffes and baby elephants and exploring the historical Karen Blixen museum. The tour visits the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, Giraffe Center, The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust: A Haven for Elephants and Rhinos, and the Karen Blixen museum dedicated to the writer of the book "Out of Africa."

Spend approximately 1 hour at the mamba village resort or equivalent restaurant for lunch and you may also like to visit the crocodile park in the resort ( own expense which is optional).
Highlights
  • Half-day combo tour: animal conservation, giraffes, and Karen Blixen
  • Chance to explore history and wildlife without leaving Nairobi
  • Convenient, round-trip transport from Nairobi hotels or the airport
  • Morning and afternoon departures available to suit your schedule
What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel or at the Nairobi airport for transfer to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an animal conservation site that’s just outside Nairobi National Park. Learn about on-site conservation efforts, such as how orphaned elephants and rhinos are prepared for life in the wild. Next, head to Giraffe Manor, where you’ll have the option to meet giraffes and feed them by hand. From there, continue to the Karen Blixen Museum, former home of the Danish author and coffee farmer who wrote Out of Africa. With furniture and décor that date back to the early 20th century, the house is a fascinating glimpse into Kenya’s past. Following your time at the Karen Blixen Museum, the tour concludes with drop-off at your original departure point.
