Learn about giraffes and see them in real life. Finally, visit the Kazuri Beads Factory to learn how the popular beads are made from start to finish and how the organization supports single mothers in the community. If you want to, you can ask your driver to drop you off at lunch or the Karen Blixen Museum at no extra cost, or ask to go to go to the Bomas of Kenya for an additional fee.

Hello Carlye Wooow!!!! these are such wonderful words and a great review.We really appreciate you taking your time to write to us .This is thanks to your cooperation and a job well done by Victor who was very intelligent who also ensured to take you to a souvenir shop which was genuine and a to stop at the Bush gardens for a nice lunch .Sorry though about the pricing for lunch but i bet you really enjoyed .Mostly the gift shops normally have hand made products with a theme of kenyan traditions that"s why you can find them same with others.Regardless we are really sorry for what transpired the next morning we hope the other company sorted it for you .Otherwise we do hope another tour sends you back to us . Asante Sana !!!!!!

Both were memorable experiences. Feeding the giraffes was wonderful. The elephants at the Sheldrick Orphanage were great to watch. I look forward to visiting both places in the coming year!
