Itinerary

Day 01

Arrival In Nairobi

Upon an early morning arrival into Nairobi you will be met and transferred to the Ole Sereni Hotel. This afternoon you will be collected from the hotel for an “Out of Africa” experience. Follow in the footsteps of Karen Blixen as you travel towards the Ngong Hills, you will feel swept immediately onto the film set of Out of Africa the moment you arrive. The old colonial farmhouse is simple, housing a few items that Karen Blixen chose and once enjoyed herself. There are also the colorful gardens to explore, where several old coffee machines have laid untouched for decades. From here visit the Giraffe Center, where the highly endangered Rothschild Giraffe can be admired. With an elevated viewing-cum-feeding platform, this tour is wonderful for children.
