After breakfast, depart for a wonderful morning of sightseeing with your knowledgeable private guide. First stop is a visit to the Karen Blixen museum located “at the foot of the Ngong Hills”. It is the former home of Danish author Karen Blixen, famous for her book Out of Africa which chronicles her life at the estate. Built in 1912 by a Swedish Engineer, the Bungalow-style house was bought by Karen Blixen and her then-husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke, n 1917. While she separated from her husband in 1921, Blixen still lived in the house in what was then British East Africa and ran a large coffee plantation on the grounds until she returned to Denmark in 1931.
You’ll also visit the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife. Also known as the Giraffe Centre, AFEW was founded in 1979 by the late Jock Leslie-Melville, a Kenyan citizen of British descent and his wife the late Betty Leslie- Melville, an American citizen. Jock’s extraordinary vision of creating an educational institution in conjunction with rescuing the endangered Rothschild giraffes result in the present day Giraffe Centre, now a world famous nature educational centre. You have a chance to hand-feed them on a raised platform.
Highlight of your excursion shall be the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust; a small charity established in 1977 to honor famous naturalist, David Sheldrick, the founding Warden of Tsavo East National Park. The visit is strictly scheduled for 1 hour a day from 11-12 noon. You will have a chance to interact with the rescued baby elephants as they play in their mud baths and drink bottles of milk fed to them by their keepers. Until the age of three, an elephant is milk dependent, and without intervention, it would die in the wild. Most babies have had dramatic rescues, and many are traumatized from the loss of their families. But here, they attach themselves to keepers who are with them always and gain confidence and strength as they grow in the nurturing environment. The African elephant calves are hand-reared here with the intention of gradually reintroducing them into the wild once they are strong enough to survive.
You shall be transferred to one of the Nairobi restaurants for lunch before heading back to your hotel where the balance of the day is at leisure.
