There was only 2 of us and the guide so it was fantastic to have him answer all our questions, stop to point things out, suggest what to buy, orientate us to the streets ,waited whilst i took photos . I had Jen suggest we do a private tour around 3 hours after we arrived so it was perfect timing as we were so excited to get out onto the streets staight away .”

“It was a great tour except it's too long. I think we spent longer than needed in the first 2 bars. I'd also like to learn about the beer history in Toronto, e.g. the first brewery, when did it start, etc.”

“I was the only person on the tour which was a shame, but it did mean that I got the undivided attention of a very knowledgeable guide. There's not an awful lot to see in downtown Johannesburg to be honest, so I could have probably done this by myself, but I felt safe with a local guide.”

Escape Nairobi’s bustling city centre and head towards the leafy suburb of Karen. Nairobi has become famous for its traffic – but you’ll get to sit back and take in the interesting sites of local life on our journey through  East Africa’s largest city. Your driver and guide will be tell you about Nairobi’s history and modern life as you travel. 

Our first stop will be the Africa Fund for Endangered Wildlife’s famous Giraffe Centre. The centre has pioneered an innovative breeding programme that’s helping to grow the population of the endangered Rothschild giraffe in the wild. You’ll learn more about this fascinating animal and the breeding project as you get up close and personal with the giraffes from the centre’s raised walkway. 

Afterwards, we’ll head the short distance to David Sheldrick’s Elephant Orphanage, located on the edge of Nairobi National Park. Since its inception, the project has hand-reared more than 150 baby elephants that have been orphaned in the wild, often due to poaching. The orphanage helps to reintegrate these gorgeous creatures into the wilds of Tsavo National Park in the east of the country. You’ll learn more about this fascinating venture and see the baby elephants being fed by their keepers. 

We’ll then head back to central Nairobi, where our tour will end around lunchtime, leaving you free for the rest of the afternoon to explore downtown Nairobi on your own.
