Did you know that Nairobi is the only city that boasts a national park? You can be admiring galloping gazelles, and regal rhinos, with a backdrop of sparkling skyscrapers. This is entirely unique in the world, and Claire, your Nairobi Heygo guide invites you on an early morning game drive through the park to spot some animals and learn about how these majestic creatures live in the wild. We'll also learn about some of the rich history of the park, the threats to it, from the dawn of the 20th century to the present day, and how it is becoming a hotspot for Nairobi daytrippers keen to escape the hubbub of the city for a couple of hours. Escapism at its best! Disclaimer: the animals on this tour are (very, literally) wild, and we never know if they'll be camera shy, or if your guide might come across a lion and scream her lungs out. They say never work with animals or children, but hey, what's life if you don't take risks! So pack your binoculars, pour yourself a gin and tonic (it protects against malaria, don't you know), and keep your eyes peeled, and you might spot something before everyone else! (Note, this is a sister tour to the 'sundowner and safari' tour, in order to cater for different timezones, and also catch different moods, animals, and scenery).
Whilst Claire is half French and half English by heritage, she is fully Nairobian by choice, and has been in Kenya for long enough to feel right at home in the city. She has lived and worked in six countries, and has always found adventures wherever she's gone: exploring the artistic and off-limits catacombs in Paris, exploring Mexico's coastline in the back of a pick-up truck, chasing alligators in Tanzania, or sky running in Kenya. But what is the common theme behind everything she does? Talking, sharing, and learning something new, so join her on her Kenyan adventures.
Get ready for something special. We’re travelling to Nairobi with no passport, no plane ticket and no luggage. And yet you’ll experience all the sights, sounds and stories with just your laptop, favorite snack and an amazing content creator.

My first tour with Claire & I loved it. I have always wanted to go on a Safari in Africa. Claire is friendly & informative & I hope to join her on safari again & see many more animals in the future.

An excellent sunrise over the estuary. Nice to see animals in the wild and to learn more about them.

Claire did a great tour and Robert was helpful too. We were able to see some animals as well as the city of Nairobi in the background. It was very nice. Thank you!
