Upon landing at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport, you will be welcomed and transferred to The Emakoko located on the Mbagathi River, bordering Nairobi National Park. This family-run, luxury lodge is artfully designed incorporating the beautiful fig trees growing on the cliff on which the lodge is built and allows you to begin game watching just 20 minutes after clearing customs. Each of the beautifully appointed rooms look out over the game park ensuring that you get a good night’s sleep with nothing but the sounds of the bush around you.
On day 2, enjoy breakfast at your hotel then head out for an exceptional wildlife experience at an elephant and rhino orphanage and sanctuary for endangered giraffes. The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is the most unique elephant & rhino relocation program in the world. Based in Nairobi, The Sheldrick Trust opens its doors to the public to view the orphans between 11 am to 12 pm. You will have lunch at the Karen Blixen Estate and visit the museum there before visiting The Giraffe Center, home to the endangered Rothschild’s Giraffe. The center gives visitors a chance to interact with the giraffes. Both the Sheldrick Trust and Giraffe center allow visitors to get up close and personal with these incredible creatures, an absolute must for anyone passing through Nairobi. We have included lunch at Karen Blixen Coffee Gardens and this afternoon you will be transferred back to your hotel for the rest of the day at leisure.
