DAY 1

Welcome To The Motherland

Welcome to Mama Africa!  

Arrive in Nairobi, where you are met and transferred to your hotel. In the afternoon visit the Giraffe Centre and Kazuri Beads

The Giraffe Centre: Giraffe Centre is the headquarters for AFEW, the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife. Made famous by Daisy Rothschild - a giraffe calf rescued from Soi on the border of Western Kenya. Giraffe Centre was established in 1983 as a sanctuary for the then endangered Rothschild giraffe.

The breeding Programme has been a great success and visitors can now watch these gentle giants at eye level from a raised platform. There is also the opportunity to learn more about giraffe at the interpretation centre and hand-feed them whilst watching the semi-tame family of warthogs snuffle around their hooves in search of tidbits.

Kazuri Beads:Kazuri Beads was set up as a small business making beads in a shed, by the late Susan Wood. She started with two single women as assistants but before long she noticed that many women in the villages around Nairobi were struggling single mothers who needed jobs. In 1988 Kazuri Beads began its long and successful journey as a help centre for needy women and now employs over 350 local women. In the early 1990's Kazuri decided to diversify into pottery and create a product that could be sold in the home market. With the help of a ceramic expert from England, a pottery business was borne, reminiscent of the pottery industry of England 100 years ago.

You have an opportunity to meet and talk to the women as they work shaping, painting or stringing the beads by hand. The beads are polished and kiln fired, painted and fired again before being strung into a necklace which in then sold in the Kazuri shops, Kenya and globally.

Welcome dinner today is at The Carnivore restaurant.

At Carnivore, meats are roasted on traditional Maasai swords over a huge charcoal pit that dominates the restaurant's entrance. The rough-hewn beams combine the rustic feel of a rural setting with that of a medieval banqueting hall.

The Carnivore doesn't conform to the familiar restaurant traditions. First, the soup of the day along with a plate of home baked bread and butter are served. Then, an army of carvers move table to table, swords laden carving juicy cuts onto sizzling cast-iron plates. Accompanying the meat feast is a selection of salads, vegetable side dishes and sauces.

WOW!!!!!! Let's just say, it would be very difficult to verbalize how great our trip was as a result of booking with Certified Africa. My wife and I are avid travelers, touching 16 countries so far. We usually create our own itinerary and almost ALWAYS focus on hanging with locals to gain the most intimate and organic experiences possible. Nonetheless, this was our 15-year Anniversary trip and thought it would be a great idea to allow someone else to plan the trip and sit back and enjoy it. With only an introduction call to discuss some must haves and our set budget, Certified Africa DELIVERED!!!!!!!! Creating a custom itinerary that blew our minds and expectations. We have already begun planning our Tanzania and Zanzibar trip for 2022. From me and my beautiful wife to you........What are you waiting for????????????? Book your next trip to the Motherland with the only travel company we feel comfortable recommending, Certified Africa! Richard and Raquel
