Kenya’s capital city, Nairobi, is the safari capital of Africa and whilst the modern world has quickly caught up, the city retains a sense of its past. Not far from the city centre is Nairobi National Park, where wildlife attractions include black rhino, lion, leopard, cheetah, hyena, buffalo, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest and eland. Guests to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust’s elephant orphanage can see the young elephants play ball, eat, take mud baths and interact with their keepers. Step back in time with a trip to the Karen Blixen Museum, once the centrepiece of a farm at the foot of the Ngong Hills owned by Danish author, Karen, and her Swedish husband, Baron Bror von Blixen Fincke. Or visit the Giraffe Centre, which offers guests the opportunity to feed the endangered Rothschild Giraffe.
