Best Day Ever!!!

My tour guide Stephen was on time. A very pleasant and fun person. I got in his vehicle, and upon asking if there were more guests to join us, his reply was a very favorable one. It was just going to be him and I all day. It would have been myself and my friend, but she did not make it, or else it would have been just 2 of us and Stephen. He ran through the itinerary and the approximate times and then we were off. He was very informative and knowledgeable. Very soft spoken individual. If you asked a question and he didn't have the answer (which was never the case) he would not make one up. We got to the Giraffe Center a bit early, but so happy that we did as we were the first ones there. We got videos and photos, uninterrupted by other patrons. This was the beauty and truth in saying "the early bird catches the most worms" Stephen took MAJORITY of my photos and videos. I used my iPhone mostly as my camera was too cumbersome. This stop was very, very informative and I learned a great deal as I wasn't aware of some of the things I was told. They are a wonderful and friendly people here at the center. He seemed to enjoy every moment of doing so and definitely didn't mind. From there we went on to the elephant orphanage. He didn't come in with me as they were still regulating the amount of visitors due the COVID pandemic. He waited in his van, but came to check on me and to see how things were going. This is a great excursion for kids. I would say for 5 and up. The younger kids tend to want to run around and play and if they are restricted, cry. You also have to be sort of quiet for the animals, so crying kids or constant talkative adults doesn't help much. I found him after, where we then went to garb some lunch at this cute and cozy place and the food and tea was delicious. From there we went on to the Kazuri beads. He came in with me but left so that they could give me the tour and he waited outside. It was very interesting and I was happy to know and hear from them that I was their VERY FIRST CUSTOMER since they opened their doors for business. I definitely purchased a couple of pieces. The owner Peter and his staff were so humble and filled with gratitude. We them moved on to our final stop, Bomas of Kenya. Here Stephen took all my photos and we walked the grounds where he showed and explained to me how they lived years ago. He was very patient and answered every and all questions. He went above and beyond for me. The final act from Stephen, is when he decided to take me to the grocery store in order for me to buy the ingredients for a special tea that I had at lunch earlier. That topped it off for me. So, thank you Stephen. I hope and pray that things will pick up as it were before COVID and thank you so very much for your hospitality and kindness. Definitely recommend this tour and make sure you ask for Stephen!

I went on this tour on my birthday and it was absolutely fabulous!! I got to feed a giraffe, pet a baby elephant, shop for souvenirs, visit the Kazuri bead factory, and watch traditional dance performance. Meshack and Eric were very kind and patient guides and I would happily recommend them.

My driver Stephen was fantastic. The giraffe sanctuary was amazing. Kissed a giraffe named Cindy and Sandy loved her pellets. David Sheldrick Orphanage was the highlight. Seeing the elephants rush from the bush at feeding time was great. Not really interested in stopping off at shops all the same. Bomas was good to see different dance and music styles

Everything was perfect. I have been a little worried about traveling alone to Nairobi. But meeting Francis who was sharp on time was so comforting. I was taken everywhere on priority. He even recommended the right spots to stand at and clicked some really lovely pictures for me. I would highly recommend this tour.
