I'm visiting Nairobi in November and only have limited time to do a few tours pre my larger tour.
I'm really wanting to visit here, however, I'm stuck on doing deciding whether to do a day tour or an overnight tour (as I've already booked accomm elsewhere).
The main thing I want to know is if I do the day tour I wont be able to do any of the Rhino Encounter Tours. Will this matter? Will I see Rhinos on the safari? Should I do an overnight tour?
Hoping someone can help.
Cheers, Amber :)
Amber, you will see rhino's on a day tour but best wildlife is in the early morning or late afternoon. Truly seeing the last of the white rhino's is a must so a overnight is your best bet. Excellent restaurants in Nanyuki to eat at LA risqué is my favorite and Somes is also excellent French dining. You can stay MT Kenya wildlife estate and book on airbnb and have wild game walking around your house. Hope this helps... The big game and predators are just outside of the electrified fence.
I would suggest staying overnight so that you get to see some wildlife. Plenty of rhino in the conservatory, but the last three northern whites (Sudan, the male, and 2 females) are not to be missed. The rhino encounter costs $40 per person, but is well worth the money.
They only do this twice a day to (I think) coincide with feeding times. Best to be there on time so that you are guaranteed a guide and tour.
Nanyuki is a fair drive from Nairobi so best to stay overnight. We had an Airbnb place that was next door to the conservatory and it was great. We were able to see one of the last three rhino and went approx 11am (self drive).
I have seen much better reserves across Africa and you may prefer the Masai Mara (unless rhino is the main thing on your hit list)
Yeah, you can
