Giraffe Centre

The Giraffe Centre is located at Karen, approximately 15 kilometers from the Centre of Nairobi, Kenya. It was established in order to protect the endangered Rothschild giraffe that is found only in the grasslands of East Africa.

The Giraffe Centre was started by Jock Leslie-Melville, the Kenyan grandson of a Scottish Earl, when he and his wife Betty captured a baby giraffe to start a programme of breeding giraffe in captivity at their home in Langata – home of the present Centre. Since then the programme has had huge success, resulting in the introduction of several breeding pairs of Rothschild Giraffe into Kenyan national parks. 

The main attraction for visitors is feeding giraffes from a raised observation platform. The center is also home to several warthogs which freely roam the area along with the giraffes.

Daphne Sheldrick Orphanage

Daphne Sheldrick Animal Orphanage is located in a secluded area of the Nairobi National Park, where orphaned baby elephants amongst other animals are taken care of by a dedicated team of conservationists.

At 1100 hours, the baby animals are brought from the National Park for a mud-bath at the orphanage, where for an hour you can get close to them and sometimes touch them.

Fogo Gaucho Brazilian Steakhouse

Fogo Gaucho is an authentic Brazilian Steakhouse that offers the most delectable selection of charcoal grilled meats that go along with a full buffet to choose from, all you can eat. This concept in Brazil is referred to as Rodizio.

Once you enter and have a seat, the waiters will offer you a drink. You are then welcome to select what you like from the buffet where you will find a soup of the day, a variety of 20 fresh salads along with dressings and condiments, side dishes and hot dishes.

Once you’re settled back at your table, the grill waiters will come around with a selection of 16 cuts of meat all prepared to perfection on the charcoal grill and you can select what you like and eat how much you like. The grill waiters will know if you would like meat because you will find a green/red token at your place setting on the table – turn it to green when you would like meat, and turn it to red if you would like to take a break or stop.

If you still have space for dessert, you can ask the waiters for our famous grilled pineapple with cinnamon sugar, and you can also visit the buffet again and take your pick from the offerings.

Monkey Park

The Nairobi City Park is basically a park in appearance. Once you have navigated yourself inside, you will find something completely different. Nairobi City Park is full of wild monkeys by the hundreds roaming around. This is the perfect place for an adventurous tourist. It is advised that you go with someone that knows the area well.
