We start of to the Giraffe Centre, Headquarters for the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife made famous by 'Daisy Rothschild', a giraffe calf rescued from Soi, on the Western Kenya border, Daisy and her family form only a small part of a herd of these gentle giants, living in a semi wild state at Giraffe Manor. These animals will come to a protecting wall to be fed when you can come eye to knee with the tallest animal in the world.
Make most use of your ticket when you go to the Giraffe center nature trail up untill the Gogo river.
This is where most people don’t get to see and its a fascinating place to walk in the nature, with bushes on either side and birds giving the most wondrous songs. Reach down to the river and search for giraffes in the wild as well but be careful you must stay at least 15meters from the Giraffes.
So the next time you visit the Giraffe center remember to visit the nature trail as well and make most of your tour ticket. The trail will take about 1 hour going up and down in a relaxing pace.
We then drive you to relive a small part of Kenya's colourful history. Karen Blixen's home, "Mbogani House", made famous by the film 'Out of Africa' has been restored by the Danish Community of Kenya, and comes under the umbrella of the National Museums of Kenya. Karen Blixen lived in the house from 1917 to 1931 when her farm had to be sold and she left Kenya never to return.
Inside the house you can see the books and cuckoo clock which were presented to the museum from the sets of the film. There is also a picture in the lounge and a china turkey which were Karen's own possessions. On the bookcases you will see the brass plaque on which 'DHF' (Dennis Finch Hatton) are engraved.
From the garden you can enjoy the magnificent views of the Ngong Hills and at the front of the house look out for the original millstone tables from which she conducted so much of her farm business.
