Nairobi Traffic from Elephant Orphanage to Airport & Arranging Visit

Jump to last reply

I'll be in Kenya in early November for work, and they've given us time to explore after 12:30pm on the Friday of our departure. I'd really really like to visit the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust Elephant Sanctuary that afternoon.

From what I understand, the sanctuary is only open to the public for an hour (11:00-12:00pm) daily. However, private tours can be arranged at 3:00pm. I also went ahead and signed up for their Foster Program, so that I'm donating towards the care of an orphaned elephant.

Has anyone been to the sanctuary and know what my best option is given my time constraints? Also, can anyone help me anticipate how long it would take to get across/around Nairobi National Park to the airport for my flight that same evening?

My fight is slated to depart Jomo Kenyatta Airport at 8:40pm, which means I should be checked in by 6:00pm. I've heard rush hour traffic is horrible, which is about when I'd be trying to leave the sanctuary (assuming I can swing a visit) to make my way to the airport. We'll have a private driver shuttling us around.
