One day in Nairobi is all you need to fall in love with the city. Nairobi offers the most amazing restaurants, various accommodation options, and the option of experiencing an actual safari right in the heart of the city. This specific Nairobi experience is an animal lovers dream; you get to see lions in their natural habitat, have a make-out session with a giraffe, and hug the cutest baby elephants.
Nairobi National Park
If you ever find yourself in Nairobi; with some time to spare, then you
should must visit the Nairobi National Park. The park boasts vast grassy plains, with scattered acacia trees, and a breathtaking backdrop of the city’s scrappers. In addition to the beautiful landscapes and views, the park is home to a variety of game; such as lions, hyenas, black rhinos, giraffes, buffalos and so much more. Each visit to the park presents new exciting experiences; so feel free to visit as many times as you would like.
David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust
Spending time at the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (DSWT) is always such a treat. The DSWT is Nairobi’s elephant’s haven found a few minutes away from Nairobi National Park. At the heart of the DSWT’s conservation activities is the Orphans’ Project, which has achieved world-wide acclaim through its hugely successful elephant and rhino rescue and rehabilitation program. At the DSWT, people get to pet and play with the little baby elephants, as they listen to all the touching rescue stories. The cherry on top of the cake is the fact that all the proceeds from DSWT go back into taking care of the elephants and financing more rescue projects.
When is the last time you got a nice wet kiss from a giraffe? The Giraffe centre is the perfect place to enjoy some one-on-one time with giraffes. You get to feed them, pet them, and even steal a kiss or two. The giraffes are super friendly so they make for some good fun. If you are scared, don’t worry, and there is a helpful tour guide to ensure everyone is safe.
