The tour starts by picking you from your Hotel/Home within Nairobi. You'll travel to Giraffe centre where you feed Rothschild giraffes under the supervision of keepers. The center has rescued, hand-reared and released around 500 orphaned giraffes back into the wild since opening in 1979.

You will then be taken to David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust to walk through the center from 11am - 12pm in an open space, with a rope fence around it. The youngest elephants come trotting out of the bush to greet their keepers who stand at the ready with giant bottles of milk. For the next 10-15 minutes you can watch each little one slurp and gargle their milk. Then, you'll have time to watch the elephants play.

The day was such fun and my guide was great
The tour was great and Steven, my guide, was friendly, knowledgeable and took great care of me.

The whole day was fabulous, but especially the giraffe's and the elephants. I would recommend it to anyone.

I was a single traveller and felt well looked after all day.
Impecccable performance
Must visit when in Nairobi! Easiest and most interesting way to understand the culture and history of Kenya. The dance performances will blow your mind by sheer perfection.
One in a lifetime experience at Hells Gate
Our trip to Hell's Gate National Park and the surrounding Naivasha area was absolutely perfect. The day started promptly on time and the trip started with a stop at the Great Rift Valley. Riding bicycles through Hell's Gate National Park was amazing -- we saw giraffes, boars, impalas, zebras, and many other animals. Our day was only made better by Kelvin, our fantastic guide. He answered each and every question I had, drove from and to Nairobi with impeccable skill, and made the day all the more enjoyable. If you have a spare few days in Nairobi, plan a trip to Hell's Gate, and plan it with Kelvin and Co.
