Are you planning a safari in Kenya next year? OTA is offering a free city tour with every safari taken between February and June 2020. So book your Kenyan safari with OTA today to enjoy this incredible bonus.
All safaris that are booked for the period beginning 1 February through to 30 June will enjoy a complimentary day trip around some of Nairobi’s highlights. The first stop will be the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage where the baby elephants come in from the park for feeding time. Their keepers introduce each elephant and tell the story of how each one came to be at the orphanage. (Read more about the Elephant Orphanage here: https://overlandtraveladventures.wordpress.com/2014/08/22/the-david-sheldrick-wildlife-trusts-elephant-orphanage/)
Next is the AFEW Giraffe Centre (https://overlandtraveladventures.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/the-best-location-to-see-giraffes/). The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife hosts about a dozen giraffes at Nairobi’s Giraffe Centre where you climb up to a platform to be at eye level with these beautiful creatures. You can feed them and even get a big sloppy kiss if you are very keen!
In the afternoon we head to Africa’s second-largest slum, Kibera. Amani Kibera is a community-based organisation working towards peace and development in the slum. Started by a team of young people following the traumatic post-election violence in 2008, Amani Kibera is committed to eradicating the tribalism that erodes Kenyan society. They promote peace through three pillars: sport, education and economic empowerment. You will have the opportunity to visit the public library they have established as well as the youth economic empowerment project where you can lend further support by purchasing some of the handicrafts the young people produce.
Valued at $135 per person this tour of Nairobi gives you the chance to see the positive work being undertaken in the fields of conservation, education, and youth empowerment by various organisations. And it’s yours for free when you book your safari with OTA to travel between February and June 2020! Contact firstname.lastname@example.org today to start planning your Kenyan adventure.
