An education centre where children and adults can learn about the endangered Rothschild’s giraffe. It’s home to a number of rescued Rothschild’s, who live on the grounds and who you can feed by stepping up onto a high platform. It’s hours of fun for kids. It’s great to have this interaction and learn about their personalities—they’re very aloof! The Giraffe Centre is about a 10-minute drive away from the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, so you can combine the two in one morning. I’d recommend going to see the giraffes before the elephants, as the Giraffe Centre can get busy in the afternoons.

Point of Interest
“The David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is a world-famous conservancy started for elephants but now extending to other baby orphans. Started by the tenacious Dame Daphne Sheldrick and her family, with love for Kenya and it's natural heritage of wildlife, it is one of the world's most successful animal orphan-rescue programmes. Be prepared to fall in love with the adorable calves and don't be surprised if you end up adopting one (or more) on the spot. Enjoy the fact that there's no discrimination against other animals, so besides elephants, you may just get to frolic with a giraffe, rhino, or warthog. Since you will be able to get very up close, this is an experience not to miss, especially for children and animal-lovers. Open visiting time is just one hour daily from 11am-12noon, with private viewing from 5pm-6pm, but by prior booking only. Contact them early to book/enquire as space can be limited. It's conveniently located within the neighbourhood, about 10km away, or a 20-40 min drive from here. Simply leave in good time to beat traffic and the crowds, and see how all that planning will be well worth it.”

“The National Museum in Nairobi is an educational way to spend a few hours on a city stopover. The museum displays diverse cultural and natural history exhibits including more than 900 stuffed birds and mammals, fossils from Lake Turkana, ethnic displays from various Kenyan tribal groups, and exhibits of local art. In the Geology Gallery, you can explore an impressive collection of rocks and minerals and learn about tectonic plates and the life cycle of a volcano. The Hominid Vault contains a collection of prehistoric bones and fossils, including the preserved fossil of an elephant. At the museum, visitors can purchase combination tickets, which include entrance to the adjacent Snake Park with live specimens of Kenya's most common reptiles.”

“If you are looking for some unique souvenirs and gifts for family and friends, the Kazuri Beads Factory is a great place to shop and help out disadvantaged local women at the same time. Kazuri means "small and beautiful" in Swahili, and these shiny, brightly-colored beads surely fit the bill. Join a free factory tour and see how local women, including many single mothers, make the beads and other pottery items from scratch. After the tour, you can purchase some to take with you, knowing you are purchasing from a World Fair Trade Organization member. Prices are relatively reasonable. This is a great tour to combine with a visit to the Karen Blixen Museum, as the factory lies right nearby.”
