Sammie was incredible!
Oct. 2021 • Couples
Wow, what an incredible time we had! Sammie our guide, was just amazing in every way, he went above and beyond to show us every animal at the National Park! He gave us ample time to take pics, he was very informative about the animals, and was very very kind and sweet. He even spotted two brother lions, but he said close your eyes…. And he pulled up really close to them, and said open! It was like a Christmas Present to see these two beautiful lions up close!!
You must take this trip, it was the best 6am wake up call ever! Sammie you’re the best! Thank you.

We came to Nairobi with no plans made. We booked this trip and Moses was our guide. We could not of asked for a better guide/partner and now new friend to show us around. He was very knowledgeable and very personable.
He is a credit to your company.
Thank you Kenya and Moses for welcoming us to your country. We will be back

Fantastic Nairobi Wildlife Experience!
Sep. 2021
Had an excellent time on this trip with my driver, Tony. He was a great guy to spend my first full day with in Nairobi and was very knowledgeable of many things Kenya! Actually got along so well that we're still in touch to this day, even after returning to the States! Highly recommend this trip. Nairobi National Park was an amazing opportunity to see all kinds of wildlife and we were lucky enough to catch both a resting lion pride and two male gazelle battling horns-to-horns! The Giraffe Center and Elephant Orphanage were also amazing places to get up close to the animals - even to the point of touch, if you wanted!

Hello, Thank you for taking time to write us a review. We are delighted to read that you had an amazing tour with us. This forms one of the most selling tours in Nairobi and lends you the opportunity to feed and even kiss the giraffes at giraffe center, watch how elephants are fed at David Sheldrick Elephant orphanage and learn about their conservation efforts and to spice up your Nairobi experience is the visit to the only park in a capital city. We are happy to read that you had the chance to spot the rhino. We would like to have you again in future as we explore other destinations.

Great tour for quick Nairobi trip
Aug. 2021 • Solo
Unfortunately the elephant orphanage was fully booked which was not the tour companies fault; However,The rest of the trip was awesome. I had a great guide, Simba that was extremely helpful and informative. I highly recommend their service. Got to see a bunch of different animals fairly close in their natural habitat and hand feeding the giraffes was an experience all of it own. If you have a short stay or a day layover in Nairobi, this is definitely a tour you would want to do.

Hello, Thank you for taking time to write us a review. We are happy to read that this tour offered a great experience, it is one of the best selling. We are happy that Simba did an excellent job, he is well knowledgeable and ensures our clients get the best services. Yes for Elephant orphanage since Covid 19 and Social distance it requires early booking becuase of the limited number per session. We hope next time you get a chance. We would like to have you again in future to explore other places.

Incredible tour
I had my tour of nairobi national park, elephant and giraffe sanctuaries. I was picked up punctually by shadrack at 630am. We were the 1st in I believe which gave us an advantage. Shadrack made sure I saw lions after a kill, white rhinos, ostrichs making love. Lol. Giraffes, crocodiles,zebras and impala. Everyone else followed his direction, one cool and knowledgeable dude. Then onto elephant sanctuary where he checked me in and then giraffe feeding . We had an incredible lunch after that, best fish curry ever!! (Own cost) Choose this company for side tours in nairobi, the cost takes care of all entrances. Less headaches and request shadrack

Hello , Thank you for taking time to write us a review and your sentiments on our driver guide, Shadrack. As a company we know how time is important to our clients. Shadrack is indeed an excellent driver guide and works hard to create the best experiences for our clients. Kenya has beautiful parks that offer one chances to spot variety of wild animals and enjoy game drives. Nairobi National park is one of them and the advantage is it is located close to the city. We are happy to hear that Giraffe Centre was a lifetime experience, Indeed it is a must Visit within Nairobi. We welcome you to travel with us again in future as we explore other destinations.

This was my first activity upon arriving in Kenya and it was absolutely worth it. Nathan, my tour guide, was on time and was great to talk to. He was extremely knowledgeable about the Nairobi National Park and went out of his way to make sure I got the best experience possible that day. I would absolutely recommend both this tour and Nathan as a tour guide. You will not regret it.

Amazing Wild Safari in the Middle of a City!
Jul. 2021
This was by far my favorite excursion on my visit to Nairobi!

If you don't have time to do a multi-day safari then this is the tour for you! Nairobi National Park is a safari oasis in the middle of a bustling metropolis! You totally forget that you are in a city when you are in the park. It feels like you are miles away in the middle of the African Plains.

During our safari experience, we saw 4 of the Big 5 (buffalo, lion, leopard, and the rhino). We also saw lots of zebras, gazelles, hartebeests and monkeys!

The Giraffe Center was a dream! We fed giraffes and took frame-worthy pics with these majestic animals!

We finished the day touring the Kizuri Bead Factory where we learned how beads are made by local women at this amazing cooperative!

Simba and Santa were WONDERFUL! They were patient and very informative!

I loved every moment of this experience!
