You are picked up from your Nairobi hotel for a drive to the Giraffe manor.The giraffe center is a close up and learning tour while in Nairobi and the tour provides opportunity for personal interaction where you view giraffes with an option of feeding them.
The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.W.) also known as the Giraffe Center owners are the idea behind this non-governmental, non-profit organization founded in 1979. This successful idea was a noble endeavor to save the endangered Rothschild Giraffe which had lost its natural habitat to agriculture and human settlement.There were only 130 left in the wild,The giraffes were moved to Lake Nakuru National Park, Mwea Game Reserve, Ruma National Park and Nasalot Game Reserve.
The Rothschild Giraffe population in Kenya has to date increased to more than 500. Later proceed to the David sheldrick elephant orphanage located in a secluded area of the Nairobi national park.
The elephant orphanage is open to the public one hour a day. It is run by Daphne Sheldrick, the wife of the late famous Naturalist, David William Sheldrick, who was the founder Warden of Tsavo East national park.
At 11:00am, the baby animals are brought from the national park for a mud-bath at the orphanage-for an hour you can get close to them and sometimes touch them. You shall have an opportunity to view the handlers feeding them.There is a keeper who will give a talk about the baby elephants origin and progress.The orphanage also takes in rhinos-if lucky you will get the chance to see a young rhino.
Later transfer back to your Nairobi hotel
