Pick up from Nairobi city hotels and proceeds to the Giraffe Center where we shall have a closer view and even feed the Rothschild’s Giraffes. 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.

Later proceed to the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage located in a secluded area of the Nairobi National Park where we view baby elephant orphans during feeding time that starts from 11:00 am to 12 noon.

Here, orphaned baby elephants and other animals are taken care of by a dedicated team of conservationists. 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
