Day 1 Nairobi – Giraffe Manor

You will be met at the airport and transferred to Giraffe Manor in the leafy suburb of Karen in the southwest outskirts of the city. You have 1 night to relax at this charming and comfortable country house hotel, meet and feed the rare Rothschild giraffes for which it is famous and do as many (or as few) excursions in the area as you like. A vehicle and driver will be at your disposal whenever required.

Day 2 Nairobi – Sweetwaters Game Sanctuary

Today we depart for Sweetwaters in the secluded heart of Ol Pejeta Ranch and Rhino Reserve. Here, these magnificent beasts are given sanctuary from those who would take their lives to sell their horns. Here too, the Jane Goodall Institute operates a remarkable Chimpanzee Sanctuary where we meet the primates face to- face. Our camp also overlooks one of the busiest waterholes in the area and offers elephant, giraffe and myriad plains game. This is Africa as Teddy Roosevelt saw it years ago when he led one of the first safaris to tour Africa in comfort and splendor. Our tents at Sweetwaters will remind us of this bygone era.
