999 Days Around Africa: The Road Chose Me
I make my way to Nairobi via Mount Kenya, though the low-lying cloud means I don’t get so much as a glimpse of the giant mountain.
I have a long list of jobs to tick off in Nairobi (more on that later), and so in the mean time I make a visit to the Giraffe Centre.
Here you can get extremely close to a couple of giraffes, even petting and hand feeding them. They don’t love being touched though, so you have to watch out for head butts which look painful. I don’t stick around to find out, but I see a few other people get it.
They are such strange creatures, and it’s amazing to be so close – their heads are absolutely enormous, really hard to comprehend up close.
Of course I opt for the full-service package!
