Day 1: Nairobi
Today visit the famous David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in the quiet Nairobi suburb of Langata. Founded in the 1970s by Daphne Sheldrick in honour of her late husband, this wonderful centre raises and rehabilitates orphaned and injured elephants, rhino and other species with the aim of reintroducing them into the wild. Here you will have the rare opportunity to interact with elephant calves for a once in a lifetime experience. A short drive will then take us to the nearby Giraffe Centre, a charitable fund dedicated to giraffe conservation efforts and home to a few of the tall mammals themselves. Take this opportunity to feed the gentle giraffes from a raised platform, and learn a thing or two about the centre and its conservation efforts with an informative talk.

Later head to the Karen Blixen Museum, housed in an old farmhouse at the foot of Ngong Hills, where the author of the popular autobiography Out of Africa lived for almost two decades. The charming old farmhouse has since been converted to a museum with original decor and movie props and has a lovely garden and restaurant.
