Day 2: Nairobi Excursion

 

Following a short briefing over breakfast, get set to see some of the famous Nairobi sites. Start off with the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage which has a nursery and rehabilitation centre for infant elephants that have lost their families, as well as the occasional rhino, zebra and other wildlife. Daphne was the first person to successfully raise an orphaned infant elephant, discovering a milk formula that has now been used widely. The widow of the famous naturalist and warden of Tsavo from 1948 to 1976, David Sheldrick, Daphne has dedicated her life to conservation. These infants are eventually released into the wild at Tsavo East National Park and end up in the care of other orphans who have been successfully reintroduced to the wild.

Later, visit a nature centre run by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife. An elevated observation walkway allows you to get face to face with 18-foot-tall Rothschild giraffes. In 1974 Jock Leslie-Melville, grandson of a Scottish earl, and his wife Betty founded the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW) and proceeded to move five babies of the highly endangered Rothschild giraffe to their property where they have been successfully reared and have since produced their own offspring. Betty chronicled these events in her book Raising Daisy Rothschild. Visit Karen Blixen Museum, famed by the Oscar-winning movie Out of Africa, Kazuri beads factory, then a city tour as you drive back to your accommodation.
