David Sheldrick's Wildlife Trust (Elephant Orphanage)

Leave your hotel in the morning and drive to Sheldrick Wildlife Trust (Elephant Orphanage) - a facility that supports orphaned elephants and returns them to the wild. The Elephant Orphanage is open to the public daily between 11am and 12 noon - timings around which the orphans are fed and let to play in the mud and dust. A resident guides will tell the audience the history of the organisation and will give a talk about the elephants, where they came from, how they are getting on, and how some of the previous orphans are progressing. You can get really close to the elephants. The orphanage also takes in rhinos and so if you are lucky you will get the chance to see a young rhino.

Continue to the Karen Blixen Museum - the former home of the "Out of Africa" Danish author Karen and her Swedish Husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke at the edge of Kenya’s beautiful Ngong Hills. The Museum was once part of a large coffee farm. The farm is also famous for being the focus of the legendary movie ‘Out of Africa’. The original farm was however sold separately to create the present suburb of Karen. The Karen Blixen Museum tour will give you a great insight into the life of Kenya’s pre-independence culture.

Many pieces of Karen Blixen's furniture constitute part of the exhibition in the Museum. The Museum house remains a serene environment that seems to belong to the past, surrounded by a tranquil garden and indigenous forest, with a splendid view of Karen’s beloved Ngong Hills. She honours the hills with the phrase ‘I had a farm in Africa at the foot of the Ngong Hills’.

Later proceed to the Giraffe Centre - a setup responsible for saving and breeding the beautiful Rothschild Giraffes which were almost extinct, they are now thriving throughout Africa thanks to the heroic efforts of founders of the Giraffe Center - Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville. Your entry fees form a part of this conservation effort. Here you will learn how the giraffes are cared for and ultimately released back into Kenya’s parks. You will also have an opportunity to hand feed the endangered giraffes.
