What to Expect
Meet a driver at your hotel and then make the first stop of the day at the Giraffe Centre, where endangered Rothschild’s giraffes are bred and protected. Climb onto a raised observation platform to feed giraffes by hand before continuing to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, an important conservation center with an orphanage for baby elephants and rhinos. Next, see how classic pottery beads are made at a Kazuri bead factory, following the process from beginning to end. Head to the Bomas of Kenya, which recreates traditional homes and cultures from across the country for a fascinating overview; you’ll have free time to purchase lunch in the on-site restaurant. In the afternoon, explore exhibitions at the Bomas of Kenya, catching cultural shows that range from music to dance, fashion, poetry, and more. The tour concludes with drop-off at the original departure point.
