Nairobi National park:
The tour starts at 7:30 am. This unique sanctuary the only one of its kind in the world borders the capital City of Kenya, Nairobi. It is the most accessible of all Kenya’s Parks. Despite it’s proximity to the city center it boasts of having four of the big five (Rhino, Leopard, Lion and Buffalo). The park also supports 450 species of birds. The Tour returns to the city center by sundown.
No Safari to Kenya would be complete without Dinner at the world-famous Carnivore restaurant, where you will dine on an endless supply of meat! Everyone who comes to Kenya must try the carnivore if they are true meat eaters.
Sample of the complete meat eating experience from regular meat to crocodile (all farm raised), camel etc. The restaurant also offers vegetarian dishes
Next we visit The AFEW (African Fund for Endangered Wildlife) Giraffe Centre is located in Langata, just outside Nairobi.
The centre has been ostensibly set up as a breeding centre for the endangered Rothschild giraffe, but now operates conservation/education programs for Kenyan school children.
There is good information on giraffes available here, and an elevated feeding platform where visitors meet the resident giraffes face to face.
Hand feeding giraffes is an education in itself. You will see, close at hand, how they use their long, prehensile tongues to remove leaves from prickly acacia branches.
The AFEW centre is also home to Giraffe Manor, a beautifully maintained colonial home, now an exclusive guesthouse.
The centre's giraffe population wanders freely through the lush gardens, and pays an occasional visit to the house itself, often pushing their heads through the French Windows to inspect the breakfast table.
Next stop is the Kazuri bead centre - a self-help women project where handmade ceramics and jewellery are produced. A visit to the workshop and craft centre will take around one hour and here you will see the various processes.
A knowledgeable guide will show you around where you will see the whole process from the molding of raw clay through to the glazing, decorating and threading of beads as finished products. The salesroom is attractively laid out and a beautiful place to visit.
Kazuri means "small and beautiful" in Swahili and this describes each and every beautifully hand-made ceramic bead which is shaped by hand by the women who work at the Kazuri workshop. The beads are kiln fired once, glazed and then fired again before being strung.
In the afternoon, you will be escorted to your Hotel or Airport for flight check-in and board your plane that takes you home with a smile and a lifetime of memories.
