The tour of the Giraffe Center, Elephant Orphanage and the Bomas of Kenya day tour in Nairobi was money well spent and made better by the tour guide, Patrick Riama who provided a lot of information one each site. I would recommend his expertise to anyone interested in learning more about the above. Maudene Exmore VA USA

I don't have anything bad to say about this experience. Everything was great and ran on time, and they even dropped me off at the airport by the end. Kelvin was amazing! Highly recommend.

The giraffes and elephant orphanage were wonderful ! Our Bomas place was closed days before we got to Nairobi. We were not informed, and a crocodile zoo was substituted without our knowledge. It was not our wish to waste half a day seeing captive animals kept for tourism. Disappointed!

First let's start with the guide Patrick K. He was courteous, professional, and knowledgeable. On Viator there were several day trips offering similar experiences, and we had decided ahead of time that we wanted to see the Giraffe Center, the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, the Kazuri bead factory, and the Bomas of Kenya.

We booked this day trip through Viator a couple days before leaving the US. Patrick met us, on time, at our hotel. His van was comfortable and clean. Off we went to the Giraffe center arriving just before they opened. Patrick recommended we start here first as everyone goes to the Elephant center THEN comes to see the the giraffes and it can be crowded. He was right, we were the only folks there for about 30-45 minutes and had the giraffes all to ourselves. Patrick showed us how to feed and pet the animals at once. :-. He then took photos of us with the gentle giants. Then off to the Elephant Orphanage. I have a bad knee that acted up the entire day, and Patrick was great about dropping us off close to the entrance and then parking. The baby elephants walked all around the perimeter of their enclosure so everyone had a chance to take photos. Patrick was on hand to take photos of us too. Thank-you sir! We never felt rushed or lacked time at any of the places we visited. The Kazuri Bead factory was next on our agenda and Patrick encouraged us to walk and see everything there. We had lunch afterward and went to the Bomas of Kenya which is a cultural event not to be missed. We had a big laugh at the baboons in the parking lot! The dancing and singing at the main center was great. Then Patrick arranged a guide to come with us and discuss the bomas as we walked around

I was very pleased with this tour. First you will be able to see the giraffes very close, feed and touch them and get a presentation about the different types you will find in Kenya. Then in the elephant orphanage you can see all the baby elephants, you can touch them too and learn about their stories and why they have been rescued. Finally I went to Bomas of Kenya where I saw the different types of tribe houses and after that in the auditorium I enjoyed different Kenyan dances. My guide Patrick was awesome, very professional, knowledgeable and friendly.
