Picked up from hotel. Very informative drive and willing to answer any questions we had. Stopped at a shop on the way to the elephants. Only just made it to the elephants on time so didn’t have a good place to stand. I recommend getting there 15 minutes early if you want a good spot to be able to touch them. Drove straight to the giraffe centre but was extremely crowded as everyone had done the same. Would suggest going to the shop in between as when we were leaving the giraffes it was empty. Flexible with options, offered to take us to a hotel for lunch (not included) and then to a bead factory but we’d run out of money by this point so we’re dropped straight to the airport. One driver was fine with this, the other seemed annoyed. Be aware, there’s a checkpoint at the airport where you have to leave a the car and all of your belongings. We weren’t informed of this, so it was a bit of a worry seeing our bags being driven away. One driver wouldn’t take us to airport drop off, instead parking in the car park, so we had to walk a while, where as the other went to the drop off point? Also, the shop we stopped at was incredibly overpriced compared with the gift shop at the giraffe centre which we were encouraged not to go to and the airport. They sell blankets for $50 as opposed to $15 in the other shops.
We were able to feed the giraffes by hand or mouth and most of us managed to touch an elephant.
It would be best to do this before a safari.

Dear Francesca First of all we are really happy you chose us , Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review and commending the driver as very informative and willing to answer. It is only through feedback such as yours that we may continuously improve our guest experience. Apologies for the inconvenience caused with regards to getting at the elephant on time instead of 15minutes earlier and everything else. Would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the only complaint that you had regarding the drop off at the airport since groups stick together. The Checkpoint is necessary for everyone accessing the airport as a security measure by the Kenyan Government. Our aim is to provide our guests with truly memorable and unique journeys. We do hope that we will have the opportunity to host you in the near future and look forward to this very much. Best Regards Kipawa
