AWESOME EXPERIENCE!

We had a fabulous time on this day tour! The elephant orphanage was our favorite. You get to touch them and get lots of great pictures because they are so close to you. They tell you about all of them and how they came to the orphanage and you get the chance to adopt one! The Giraffe center was very cool as well. unfortunately it was under construction so where you usually get to stand to feed them was closed and there was just a very small space to feed. This means you have to be patient to get pictures and to interact with them due to spacing but again very cool! You are not allowed to "kiss" them due to covid but you still get to feed them.

Tour operator offers tour knowing (!) that at least one essential part (Elephant orphanage) has been closed, Tour operator did not answered or accepted my suggestion about partial refund. It is scam!

Halo and we want to say that this is not an Honest review of what transpired. 1. We told you in advance that the date of the opening of the elephant orphanage has been pushed back. 2. we gave you an option to cancel the tour and you be given a full refund but you agreed to do the tour. 3. You agreed to do the tour on condition you get a refund for the entrance of the elephant orphanage which is 500 (5) and we gave you the refund. 4. Our driver peter of whom you got along well offered to take you to other places including the Karen Blixen museum and the Kazuri Beads at no extra transport cost. At the end of the tour you told us you had a good time only for us to see a refund request of 35 USD on top of the 5 that we already gave you. We procesed the refund for you through viator and ended up making a LOSS on your tour. Why such a terrible rating? we dont understand unless you are our competitor trying to drive us out of the business. This review is dishonest and unfair to the guides whom daily survival depend on this tour.

Awesome Tour

This trip was my first encounter with Kenya and I was well pleased. George picked us up at the airport and took us straight on tour. He’s cheerful, entertaining and overall a very good person. The interaction was natural and we felt safe and comfortable. The trip was fun and a great introduction to Nairobi. Please do not hesitate to book.

My Guide George was fabulous. The day wasn't quite a full day. But he offer me extras. He had great knowledge and know how on Nairobi and the area. He even managed to get me to the front to see the elephant.

A comprehensove one day tour

It was a nice quick and comprehensive tour of 2 major attractions of Nairobi. My guide/driver Santa was fun and friendly. He knew exactly where to make me stand for Elephant Orphanage to to get the best view in the house. Thank you Santa! I had also booked airport transfer with the same company and he was ready before time even though it was late at night. I feel this tour can be done as a half day tour too or in reduced time.

Our trip to the orphange and giraffe centre was amazing ! Was one of the most special days of our lives. The work that both places do for animals is exceptional. Our guide Victor was brilliant. Picking us up a little bit earlier to make sure we beat the traffic and have a good place to view the elephants at the orphange. All the best Krisztina and James.

We had a great time and our guide was very helpful. He gave us the "inside knowledge" of where to stand for the best view of the elephants and was flexible with the itinerary. Vehicle used was a little old but got us there and back safely.
