Light On the Horizon
Light on the Horizon is a tour in the Magical Kenya Signature Experience Collection – curated, unique, authentic and exceptional once-in-a-lifetime Kenyan travel experiences accredited by the Kenya Tourist Board (KTB)
On this energetic One Horizon day tour, we combine visits to two of Nairobi’s best-known wildlife conservation centres with a small-scale farming program that is changing the lives of Kenyan grandmothers. You get up-close to giraffes from a raised walkway at the Giraffe Centre, which has been instrumental in saving the Rothschild giraffe from extinction, and watch adorable baby elephants and hear about the complex process of returning them to the wild at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, the most successful elephant rehabilitation program in the world. We then spend an insightful afternoon as guests of endearing and entrepreneurial grandmothers at a grassroots social enterprise project supported by One Horizon in a rural Kikuyu community.

Stop At: David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, Mbagathi Road Kws Workshop Entrance - Nairobi National Park, Nairobi 00503 Kenya
Our first stop is the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife’s famous Giraffe Centre, which has pioneered an innovative breeding programme to grow the population of the endangered Rothschild giraffe in the wild. You’ll meet the giraffes at eye level from the centre’s raised walkway. We then go the short distance to the elephant orphanage at the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust. The trust has hand-reared hundreds of baby elephants, and rereleased them back into the wild.
You then spend an engaging afternoon in the rural homes of Kenyan grandmothers, who are remarkable and inspirational women that have taken on the responsibility of caring for their grandchildren and extended families. You’ll look around a pig farm where a grandmother proudly explains pig-husbandry and how her bio-gas system powers her home; and the involvement of travellers like yourselves that aims at improving the livelihoods of the grandmothers.
