Itinerary

Pick up / drop off from your hotel or the city center
Approximate Departure time: 08:30 – 09:00
Follow in the footsteps of Karen Blixen as you travel towards the Ngong Hills, you feel swept immediately onto the films 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 is also the colorful gardens to explore, where several old coffee machines have laid untouched for decades.
From here visit the AFEW Nature (Giraffe) Center near Giraffe Manor where you may hand-feed the Rothschild giraffe that live here. The giraffe were brought here by Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville, who founded AFEW (African Fund for Endangered Wildlife) and built the Nature Center to help educate young African children about wildlife conservation. The Rothschild giraffe are the tallest species and may reach eighteen feet in height, but you can see eye to eye with them on the elevated walkway at the center.
