Nairobi Day Trips

City Tour – Pick up from your accommodation and head straight to the Animal Orphanage in Langata.  Next stop is the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage followed by lunch.  In the afternoon we visit the Giraffe Centre and Kazuri Beads before returning you to your accommodation.

Mount Longonot National Park – This park is situated approximate 70km from Nairobi and provides a wonderful hiking opportunity for the hale and hearty.  It’s a fairly steep ascent for about 3km from the base to the crater rim – it is (or was) a volcano.  You can then opt to circumnavigate the entire crater rim, which is approximately 7km, before descending back to the base.  From the top you can have expansive views of the Great Rift Valley and Lake Naivasha.  Guides and porters are available upon request.

Lake Nakuru National Park – Depart early from your Nairobi accommodation for the nearly 200km drive to Nakuru.  Lake Nakuru National Park is famous as the home to thousands of greater and lesser flamingos. The park also provides sanctuary for Rothschild giraffe, rhino and leopard. We can eat lunch in the park (pack a picnic or dine at one of the lodges) and continue with an afternoon game drive.

Hiking Ngong Hills – From your Nairobi accommodation we drive out of the city to the nearby Ngong Hills.  This was where Karen Blixen (of Out of Africa fame) preferred to hike and hunt with her companion Denys Finch Hatton.  The hike is about 2.5-3 hours long through Masai land.  It’s a great day out of the hustle and bustle of downtown Nairobi.

Lake Magadi Hot Springs (overnight) – Depart in the early afternoon and drive approximately 150km to the Magadi Community Eco-Tourism Project.  Our entry fees pay for the nearby salt company to transport fresh water to the community and for students in the community to go to university.  We will arrive in the late afternoon as the sun begins to fade, making it the perfect temperature to enjoy the Hot Springs.  We camp by the springs and can bathe under the stars as our campfire crackles close by.  The next morning, after a final dip, we return to Nairobi.
