Most people bypass Nairobi on their way to a safari or beach resort which is a shame as it shouldn’t be missed. I had a chance to visit the Daphne Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage where they actively rescue orphaned baby elephants and instead of using them as an attraction they simply re-home them in the wild once they're old enough.

The giraffe centre is also well worth a visit and I was even kissed by a giraffe! I also had the opportunity to hand feed them - if the giraffe centre didn’t exist the Rothschild giraffe would actually be extinct.
