08:00 a.m- We visit the Nairobi National Museum.
The Nairobi National Museum began as the Coryndon Museum, named for Sir Robert Coryndon, a prominent patron of the Uganda Natural History Society. On September 22, 1930, the site was opened as the Nairobi National Museum, a repository that preserves the history and cultures of Kenya. Later, Dr. Louis Leakey successfully raised funds to expand the museum, and many of the gallery names honor prominent personas of the past, such as Mahatma Gandhi, Aga Khan, Winston Churchill and others. During the 1960s, the Nairobi Snake Park was added to the museum.
Expansion continued to include research programs in ethnography and cultural anthropology in cooperation with the University of Nairobi and Institute of African Studies, as well as a close association with the Institute of Primate Research. Between 2005 and 2008, there have been significant fabricated and collection expansions of the museum to keep up with highest standards of excellence.

1230hs- 1330hrs- Lunch at the Galleria or a Chosen restaurant
1400hrs- Visit the A.F.E.W- Giraffe Center
The Giraffe Center was first opened in response to the endangered status of the Rothschild giraffe, the population of which had declined, reaching a low of 130 animals in the wild as a result of agricultural practices in their native habitat. Successful fundraising efforts secured monies to move four herds of these graceful animals to Lake Nakuru National Park, Nasalot Game Reserve, Mwea Game Reserve and Ruma National Park, and the success of these efforts has increased the population to over 500 individual giraffes in Kenya alone. The most exciting part of your tour visit to the Giraffe Center is the experience of seeing these animals up close and even feeding them! To raise awareness, the center provides free environmental education to young Kenyans and promotes conservation efforts of endangered species in Kenya.
