Day 9: – Half day Nairobi Excursion - Transfer to Airport
Nairobi City Tour: Today our adventure begins from our hotel. As we tour the city, we see the most interesting elements of Nairobi – Parliament buildings, Kenyatta International Conference Center, City market and 1998 US Embassy Bomb blast site in Nairobi. The city begun in 1899, and grew as a central point for the Kenya – Uganda Railway. Nairobi comes from the Masai word, "Enkare Nyrobi" meaning the "place of cool water". We then proceed to the David Sheldrick Orphanage. Daphne Sheldrick is a world–class conservation figure and the premier authority on the successful raising of milk–dependent infant elephant and rhino orphans. Daphne Sheldrick Animal Orphanage can only be visited for an hour every day between 11am and noon. During this hour the baby elephants are brought out to play and to feed, and visitors can watch them from behind a rope. Wardens are on hand to explain the work of the orphanage and to answer any questions. 

Next stop is the Kazuri bead centre - a self-help women project where handmade ceramics and jewellery are produced. A visit to the workshop and craft centre will take around one hour and here you will see the various processes. A knowledgeable guide will show you around where you will see the whole process from the molding of raw clay through to the glazing, decorating and threading of beads as finished products. The salesroom is attractively laid out and a beautiful place to visit.

Kazuri means "small and beautiful" in Swahili and this describes each and every beautifully hand-made ceramic bead which is shaped by hand by the women who work at the Kazuri workshop. The beads are kiln fired once, glazed and then fired again before being strung.

In the afternoon, you will be escorted to the Airport for flight check-in and board your plane that takes you home with a smile and a lifetime of memories. Tracks Berg Travel representative will have re-confirmed your onward flight, and will assist you at check-in.
