Nairobi City Tour

You’ll begin your safari adventure with a visit to Nairobi’s popular Animal Orphanage. Housed
within Nairobi National Park, the Animal Orphanage was established as a refuge and
rehabilitation centre and is home to more than twenty animal and bird species. Adults and
children alike will have the chance to bond with these animals in an up close and personal
experience.
Later in the morning, at 11am, you’ll head to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage. You and
your kids will get to watch as these adorable baby elephants work through their rehabilitation
with exercises, feeding, and bathing.
Next stop is the Giraffe Centre – a breeding centre for the Rothschild Giraffe. The centre’s
elevated feeding platform lets visitors have a face to face view of the giraffes as they eat, and
children are even afforded the opportunity to hand feed one of these beautiful creatures. You’ll
also have the chance to roam the Giraffe Centre’s beautiful grounds, and might meet a few of the
centre’s taller residents as you walk.
After lunch, it’s time to visit Mamba Village for a visit to their Crocodile Farm and meet their
Masai Ostrich population. Other activities at Mamba Village include fishing, cycling, and
swimming. It’s up to you!

coming along for the ride. While kids can certainly enjoy game drives, we at African Diurnal
Safaris have designed this itinerary to ensure that adults and kids alike can leave Kenya with

We understand that parents need time and space to relax while children need time to enjoy
themselves and burn off some energy outside of a safari vehicle, and have designed this itinerary
accordingly.
We have hand-picked activities that will entertain both young and old, and designed an itinerary
guaranteed to please the young, the young at heart and those wanting to see Africa’s iconic
