Nairobi city tour – Animal orphanage (4-6 hours ) or the Orphanage is home to deeply traumatized, often injured, suffering from shock and grief having lost their mother and family- orphaned animals from all over Kenya. The orphanage is not big – in fact, it is rather small, but this helps make it very intimate and easy to wander around.
What adds to its charm and sense is that every enclosure has a notice describing the animals which allows you to relate to them.
The Orphanage educates the public about wildlife and environmental conservation in Kenya. One can read the life history of each animal – whether it was rescued or born in captivity. Between 2.00 pm to 3.00 pm is a good time to see the animals as they are fed. The animals here include cheetahs, Lions, Leopards and Hyenas among others.
This safari can be combined with Mamba village at no extra cost .
