A Day in Nairobi

You can start your Kenyan safari experience as soon as you land in Nairobi by visiting these three places. All three can be covered in one day!

 

Giraffe Park

This park is home to some of the endangered Rothschild Giraffes in East Africa.

The main attraction of the park is that the visitors can pet and feed food pellets to the giraffes, who are incredibly friendly and calm.

They pretty much chill with the visitors until they’re full and then walk away into the wild. But there are enough giraffes in the park for a constant steam of them coming over to say hello to the people, so everyone gets a chance to feed the adorable animals!

National Museum of Kenya

The National Museum is a wonderful and condensed introduction to Kenyan history – human and natural – and contemporary art.

It summarizes the past and present with colorful displays of artifacts and beautiful paintings.

Snake Park

The snake park adjoins the National Museum of Kenya. The park is pretty much a low-scale zoo with reptile inhabitants. I don’t think I would go out of my way to visit the park. But it’s worth stopping by if you’re already there visiting the museum.
