Kenya safari to include trip to Nairobi Animal Orphanage?

Individuals may be tempted to go to the Nairobi Animal Orphanage when they are in Kenya.

The chance to go on a Kenya safari is one of the main reasons many people make their way to the country.

However, some may prefer a more relaxed chance to see some of the big five game – leopards, lions, elephants, buffalo and rhinoceroses.

Established in 1964, the refuge and rehabilitation centre has over 200,000 visitors a year.

The site – which is set within the confines of the Nairobi National Park – takes in wild animals that are injured and nurses them back to health.

People can visit all-year round and it is only a short drive form Nairobi city centre to the location.

Alternatively, individuals can take a trip to Samburu National Reserve, which has a number of rare species of birds, as well as the Grevy's zebra, Somali ostriches and reticulated giraffes.
