I reached to the Jomo Kenyatta International Airport after a tiring journey of 12hours straight from Delhi but nothing could hold my excitement. What I needed was just the perfect start off dinner. This is when a friend suggested to go to The Alchemist, Parklands Road. Perfect place to party on amazing grooving music and treat yourself to the sumptuous food menus from all so different and colourful food trucks.
Thereafter started my trip. First thing in the morning to visit was DAVID SHELDRICK WILDLIFE TRUST-raising orphaned elephants and rhinos. It’s a limited people limited time venue to be visited. You can only visit between 11am - 12noon being there before time as it’s a 1 hour show. It’s Kenyan Shilling 500 per visitor for entry. Here you get to hear the stories of the baby elephants and how they ended up in the orphanage while your eyes are treated to see all those babies play in mud, drink milks and play with you.!! They can be so much fun to watch.
You also have an opportunity to adopt an elephant and get a privilege to call yourself a parent to one. It’s just USD 50 minimum for 1 year.
Next visit was to the GIRAFFE CENTRE an AFEW (African Fund for Endangered Wildlife) initiative, situated at Duma Road, Nairobi.
Here you can really have some fun feeding the tall giraffes right off your palms. And lucky ones just get licked on their faces. It’s just so much exciting watch them playing around with you while you give them snacks. The Entry fees for tourists is Kshs 1,000. Close by is Giraffe Manor- an amazing hotel to
have your lunch while giraffes roam around you and you can just love this entire experience.
Then came to the SNAKE PARK- Small zoo featuring a wide range of snakes, crocodiles & tortoises in glass & open-air enclosures located at Museum Hill Centre, Muthithi Road. For tourist the entry fee here is Kshs 1200. If you get lucky you might find yourself with a snake in your hand.
