Just a short drive from the heart of Nairobi, Kiambethu Farm at Limuru provides a tranquil insight into life on a settler farm. Situated at 7,200 ft., Kiambethu was bought and farmed by AB McDonell in 1910. He was the first person to grow, make and sell tea commercially in Kenya – now one of Kenya’s biggest exports. Five generations have lived on the farm and it is currently run by his granddaughter Fiona Vernon. The farm house is set within beautiful gardens surrounded by acres of tea and indigenous forest – home to the Colobus monkey and plenty of other wildlife.

It was a though but fantastic tour to mount longonot. We walked about 3 hours to see the crater, some animals and the beautiful nature. After that we spent some relaxing time at the boat trip at lake naivasha, and see some hippo's, birds and zebra's. Driver Sammy and guide Peter were 2 excellent and professional persons who make you're day more better. They're also very helpful, respectful and friendly. I recomment this tour to everyone who loves the nature!

With three extra days in Namibia, I decided to include a quick trip to Etosha. I struggled to find a company that was still operational, and met my needs. Then I chatted with Megan, representative with Across Africa. I quickly knew she was actually interested in helping. Her sincerity, honesty, humanity and dedication were recognized immediately, and I knew that I didn’t need to search further. She set up my trip with no hidden BS, made an effort to meet all my needs, and did all of it promptly, professionally, and graciously. My trip turned out perfectly down to the last detail. I credit Megan and my guide Steve for making my quick visit to Etosha unforgettable. Because of them I will use Across Africa in the future and suggest to others that they do the same!

Highly recommend this full day tour of Nairobi if you only have one day in the city! Visiting the Giraffe Centre and the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in the morning is advisable to beat the crowds. The Giraffe Centre is a must - feeding and kissing giraffes and learning about the conservation and education the centre provides is an amazing experience. The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust is close by, and our guide Stephanie made sure we arrived early and secured us a perfect spot to view all the baby elephants. We had a solid hour learning about how the foundation saves orphaned baby elephants, and lots of opportunities to observe all the adorable baby elephants and how they are fed and looked after. Warning: you will definitely want to adopt one after! After a delicious traditional Kenyan lunch, we continued with Stephanie for a tour of Nairobi. We really enjoyed the views from the helicopter pad, and found the Archives and National Museum interesting. Stephanie was so friendly and knowledgeable, we were lucky to have her as our guide.

Kevin gave me and my parents an amazing tour of Kibera. We met his family and friends and got firsthand information on what life is like in Kibera. Everyone we encountered was very friendly. I recommend Kevin’s tour to everyone who visits Nairobi. By booking this tour you are not only visiting Kibera, you are also helping out the Kibera residents because Kevin puts that money into local projects to help his neighbors and community. Thank you Kevin!!!

Incredible experience! Saw 4/5 the big five on this epic journey. The drive from Nairobi was long, but the driver made it fun with playing local music. The camp we stayed at was great, food was good, tents were clean, and we had hot water/shower/sink/toilet. The safari was incredible, and our driver made sure we saw as much as we could. We watched the sunset in the park during the sunset drive and the sunrise the next morning during the sunrise drive. We also visited the Masai Mara village which was such an interesting experience. 100% recommend the safari and village tour with day2daysafaris. Also, if you're wondering about traveling during the pandemic, everything was safe and recommend traveling now as there are very few tourists.

Highly recommend this tour of the Kibera slums. Our guides Winnie and Willie were gracious and engaged and gave us an insiders look at life inside the Kibera slums. The proceeds of the tour go to support the educational mission inside the slum - which made it all the more worth the time.

Gracepat was an amazing safari experience on a decent budget that I recommend to all my friends and travel groups. What made it even more special was Kelvin, our guide. He is a professional, very knowledgeable, poly, people caring and always striving to make us happy and exceed our expectation. He loves and respects the nature and he knows everithing about wildlife. He knows all the animals, birds and all about the african culture. There was no question we asked that he did not know the answer. He is also an expert driver in all types of terrain, starting from the wet and muddy conditions to the dry ones. Incredible Safary Experience :) !

This was my first visit to Nairobi and when I asked about the places I should visit, people definitely recommended the Giraffe Center, Karen Blixen’s house and of course the Elephant Orphanage. Erick picked me up at the hotel and took me to the Giraffe Center where I had such a great time feeding the giraffes and taking lots of pictures with these extraordinary animals. Then we went to Karen Blixen’s house where another great tour guide (Peter) took me around and graciously explained all about the place! Unfortunately I was not able to see the elephants since the orphanage was closed due to Covid. All in all, it was a great day in Nairobi.
