Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage - AFEW Giraffe Centre - Kazuri Bead Workshop - Karen Blixen Museum


1. Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage
Made even more popular by the BBC’s show ‘Elephant Diaries’, this is where you can get up close and learn about the complex life of baby elephants (and sometimes baby rhino). During your hour-long visit you will be informed about the success the Sheldrick’s are having raring these orphans and reintroducing them back into Kenya’s wild. You will be at the orphanage for their feeding and play time which is a delight to watch.


2. AFEW Langata Giraffe Centre
Have you ever been kissed with an 18 inch tongue? Once almost extinct, you can now handfeed the endangered Rothschild giraffes. It is quite an experience being eye to eye with a giraffe - you can get a real sense of the size of these gentle giants. There is also an education centre with lots of information about the breeding and conservation of the rarest of Kenya’s three giraffe species.


3. Kazuri Bead Workshop
Visit one of Kenya’s business success stories. Established in the 1970s, this pottery, ceramic and bead factory employs all single mothers to make its beautiful gifts and souvenirs - which are now exported all around the world. There is a gift shop which stocks some of their wares. Please note that the workshop is closed Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday, however the gift shop is open 7 days.


4. Karen Blixen Museum
Step back in time with a visit to the old colonial house of Danish author, Karen Blixen. Now a museum, this property and the surrounding Ngong Hills were made famous in the book and then the movie ‘Out of Africa’. It is is must see for all Danes and lovers of African history and romance.
