WHAT TO DO IN NAIROBI

Shopping at OneFortyEight includes a beautiful boutique which features Elizabeth Fusco Designs, as well as a premium selection of high end Kenyan-made artisanal products. 

VISIT THE DAVID SHELDRICK WILDLIFE TRUST

This is where Daphne Sheldrick has perfected the raising of orphaned elephants and rhinos. It is possible to see the baby elephants (and possibly Maxwell the baby rhino) every day from 11am-12pm. The young elephants are with their keepers in the forest from 6am in the morning, and come down to the mud bath for the 11am feed before returning back to the forest for the rest of the day. Adoption of one of these very special animals is also possible allowing you to follow its adventure back into the wild.

FEED THE GIRAFFES BY HAND

The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Centre, also known as The Giraffe Sanctuary, is a stone's throw from OneFortyEight, and their education centre gives guests the opportunity to feed the Rothschild giraffes by hand and learn more about this rare breed of Giraffe.

SAFARI IN NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK

Nairobi National Park is unique in being the only protected area in the world with a variety of animals and birds close to a capital city and is only a few minutes’ drive from OneFortyEight. We recommend an early morning game drive with picnic breakfast, or why not spend a day in this beautiful wilderness and take one of our scrumptious picnic lunches.

SHOP FOR UNIQUE SOUVENIRS

Nairobi is a maze of local craft markets, upmarket boutiques, charming restaurants and lively bars, which are all within easy reach of OneFortyEight.

EXPERIENCE THE LIFE OF KAREN BLIXEN

By visiting the home of Karen Blixen, you'll find yourself soaking up the atmosphere of a life long gone. Her pioneering spirit and utter determination to succeed in an era when women were considered to be incapable of such efforts can be felt throughout her home, now a museum in Karen.
