Camp Activities

Apart from a variety of shops there are also plenty of interesting places to visit.
Within walking distance Kazuri Beads and the Karen Bilxen museum make an interesting circuit.
If you have more time the Giraffe centre and Daphne Sheldrick’s Elephant orphanage are a must. The elephant orphanage is only open from 11.00am – 12.00am and it pays to be early. All the above can be done in one circuit with our resident taxi drivers.
