NAS001 THIKA SPECIAL (½ Day)

Thika town is 45kms from the city centre and within the town you find the Blue Posts Hotel. The hotel was first established in 1908 as a stopover for the white settlers who farmed and lived in the central part of the country on their way out and back to the city. During the Second World War in 1939 the British Army camped on the site and built up a few bandas whose posts they were standing on were painted blue and this is where the name Blue Posts originated. Today two rivers namely Thika River and Chania River each with a natural waterfall surround the hotel popularly known as ‘Hidden Jewel of Thika’. Both rivers originate from the Aberdare Ranges though from different sources.

NAS002 NAIROBI CITY TOUR (3 Hrs)

The tour covers the modern city centre, the National Museum and the adjacent Snake Park, Parliament Buildings, the Railway Museum where old steam locomotives are exhibited including the one from which Superintendent John Lyall was taken from by a man-eating lion in Tsavo in 1901. You will also visit the city market where a wide variety of African curios and tropical fruit and flowers are on sale, ending with a visit to the Kenyatta International Conference Centre view-point which has a revolving restaurant.

NAS003 NAIROBI NATIONAL PARK (4 Hrs)

This unique wildlife sanctuary is just a few kilometres from Nairobi's bustling city centre but despite its proximity over 50 species of mammals can be found there including four of the 'big five'.
