On transit and have a few hours to spend on an excursion? Try the only national park in the world that is situated in a capital city, the Nairobi national park or have a drive to the historical blue post in Thika. All these and more can be organized to suit your time frame from as short as three hours to one and a half days. Why pass Kenya without a bit of its promising experience?

RLS100 - 1 Days THIKA SPECIAL (1/2 DAY)
Min. Person: 2

Thika town is 45kms from the city centre and within the town you find the Blue Posts Hotel. The hotel was first established in 1908 as a stopover for the white settlers who farmed and lived in the central part of the country on their way out and back to the city. During the Second World War in 1939 the British Army camped on the site and built up a few bandas whose posts they were standing on were painted blue and this is where the name Blue Posts originated. Today two rivers namely Thika River and Chania River each with a natural waterfall surround the hotel popularly known as ‘Hidden Jewel of Thika’. Both rivers originate from the Aberdare Ranges though from different sources.

 

RLS101 - 1 Days NAIROBI CITY TOUR (3 HOURS)
Min. Person: 2

The tour covers the modern city centre, the National Museum and the adjacent Snake Park, Parliament Buildings, the Railway Museum where old steam locomotives are exhibited including the one from which Superintendent John Lyall was taken from by a man-eating lion in Tsavo in 1901. You will also visit the city market where a wide variety of African curios and tropical fruit and flowers are on sale, ending with a visit to the Kenyatta International Conference Centre view-point which has a revolving restaurant.

 

RLS102 - 1 Days NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK (4 HOURS)

This unique wildlife sanctuary is just a few kilometres from Nairobi’s bustling city centre but despite its proximity over 50 species of mammals can be found there including four of the ‘big five’. The tour also includes a visit to the animal orphanage where wounded or orphaned animals are nurtured back to health. The tour returns to the city centre by sundown.

 

RLS103 - 1 Days KAREN BLIXEN AND GIRAFFE CENTRE (4 HOURS)

Drive towards Ngong Hills by passing the Ngong village to the Karen Blixen Museum of the ‘Out of Africa’ fame, which was for many years her home. Later proceed to the Giraffe Centre to view and feed the famous Rothschild’s giraffe which is an endangered species from a specially constructed viewing-platform.

 

RLS104 - 1 Days CARNIVORE EXPERIENCE
Min. Person: 2

(Guaranteed daily at 12.30 p.m and 07.00 p.m)
Nairobi has many restaurants offering a wide variety of cuisine. We recommend a dinner or lunch at the Carnivore, which is famous for its succulent steaks and barbecue, dishes including game meat and is therefore dubbed ‘the meat eaters’ paradise. The restaurant also offers a vegetarian menu; the meal is an excellent complement to a holiday especially as a welcome or farewell dinner. The cost includes transfers to and from Nairobi City Centre.

 

RLS105 - 1 Days BOMAS OF KENYA (3 HOURS)
Min. Person: 2

A ‘Boma’ is a homestead and just a few kilometres from Nairobi we have the Bomas of Kenya where the day-to-day lives of the 42 different ethnic groups in Kenya are depicted through traditional dancing, music, song and folklore. These plus an acrobatic show are performed in a splendid arena.

 

RLS106 - 1 Days LAKE NAKURU EXPRESS (1DAY)
Min. Person: 2

Lake Nakuru lies in the volcano-strewn Rift Valley, one of a chain of 8 lakes, which stretch the length of Kenya from Tanzania to Ethiopia. The 160 km drive from Nairobi passes through highland farms of the Kikuyu people before descending the escarpment into the dramatic landscape of the Rift. Lunch is taken in the Park and is followed by an extensive tour which focuses on the bewildering spectacle of a million flamingos but which also seeks out the large variety of wildlife with which the park abounds. On the tea break among the fever trees bird watchers will delight in the fantastic array of bird life. The tour ends in Nairobi in the late evening.

 

RLS109 - 1 Days MT. LONGONOT AND LAKE NAIVASHA (1 DAY)
Min. Person: 2

Leave Nairobi City ––“The concrete Jungle” and drive westwards stopping at the viewpoint on the Great Rift Valley and view the Loita Plains and also from here you can see Lake Naivasha sparkling in the sun thousands of feet below. Then proceed to Lake Naivasha (and this is the highest Lake in The Rift Valley). Also Lake Naivasha is famous in the 1930’s as a staging post for Imperial Airways Flying Boat Services from Durban to London.
You can have a boat ride to the Crescent Island (Optional activity).

N.B. Crescent Island is one of the few places in all Africa where you can wander on foot among herds of zebra, wildebeest, gazelle, and giraffe, because of the absence of predators.

The small perimeters of the park give you a chance to see a variety of wildlife. Hereafter you’ll return back to Nairobi.
