On the 2nd (Thu), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: look for all kinds of wild species at David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, then stop by Matbronze Wildlife Art, then identify plant and animal life at African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (Kenya) Ltd. - Giraffe Centre, and finally look for gifts at Utamaduni Craft Centre.
