Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club offers one of East Africa’s prize Golf Courses and plenty of recreation and fun for the family. Each room has a spectacular view of the Golf Course. And, the Estate is home to a friendly and entertaining troop of Monkeys. But, don’t leave your hotel room door open – they will come inside to see if you have a treat for them!
FULL DAY EXCURSION IN NAIROBI & AFTERNOON GOLFING
Quick early morning breakfast at the hotel (at 0600 hours). At 0630 hours leave for the short drive to Nairobi National Park, the only park in the world within a city. The game drive will take approximately 3 hours.
About Nairobi National Park:
It occupies 117 square kilometers and was the first national park established in Kenya in 1946. The Park is the only wildlife park in the world where free ranging Lions and Rhinos share a city with humans. It is also the only protected wildlife area in the world bordering a capital city, Nairobi hence dubbed “The World’s Only Wildlife Capital.” Major wildlife attractions are the Black Rhino and the White Rhino, Lion, Leopard, Cheetah, Hyena, Buffaloes, Giraffe, Zebra, Wildebeest, Elands and about 400 species of birds. Other attractions include the ivory burning site monument, and Nairobi Safari Walk.
No one knows how shy or social the animals will be. It can never be guaranteed which animals will want to reveal themselves. But, Nairobi National Park is an excellent way for the children and family to learn and practice their tracking and spotting skills. So, be sure to have your binoculars in one hand and your camera in the other!
After the Game Drive we will drive North East to the outskirts of Nairobi to view Coffee Plantations. Traditionally, Kenya has been an agricultural country with Coffee Plantations forming its major cash crops. These plantations are not only a symbol of Kenya's Colonial past but are also a landmark of its vibrant economy.
Lunch at a local restaurant. Drive back to the Hotel.
The rest of the afternoon will be spent at the Golf Course for Golfers, by the pool side, on the balcony of your room or trekking on the amazingly manicured gardens and paths, with tall, green trees home to the resident Monkeys.
Dinner at Chef Kiran Jethwa's Seven Seafood and Grill. Chef Jethwa first came to be known through his National Geographic show, Tales from the Bush Larder, He is now appearing in the travel adventure series The Fearless Chef on the National Geographic Channel.
Back to the Hotel for a restful night’s sleep or “LaLa Salama” in Swahili.
FULL DAY EXCURSION IN NAIROBI OR FULL DAY GOLFING
On this day you will have a full day excursion in Nairobi city, with the option for Golf lovers of a full day Golf at your Hotel, Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club.
We will wake up for breakfast, overlooking the course. To keep you warm, special chimneas are set by the outdoor tables.
The Golfers will proceed to the Golf Course at their convenience. For those who choose the full day excursion in Nairobi, we will depart the hotel at 0900 hours and proceed to the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage (open strictly between 1100 hours to 1200 hours).
About the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust:
The Orphanage is located within the Nairobi National Park. It is a center for the rehabilitation and rearing of Orphaned Baby Elephants. It was founded by Dame Daphne Sheldrick in 1977, in honor of her late husband and famous naturalist David Leslie William Sheldrick.
His wife continues his work of raising Orphaned Baby Elephants that have been brought to her from all over the country. The Orphanage is a charitable organization, and is open to visitors daily between 1100 hours and 1200 hours, when the babies take their mud baths.
Alternatively, an opportunity is offered for those interested in adopting a Baby Elephant. This requires a prior booking and visits are between 1700 hours and 1800 hours. Adoption fee of US$50 per Baby Elephant is payable. Adoption includes private visits for “fosters / godparents / guardians” and you are able to watch and say “good-night” to your baby as he goes to sleep. This can be arranged for you, if you are interested in this truly once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The orphanage has fully dedicated and experienced team that is committed to ensuring the survival of these babies and their reintroduction to the natural wild. Time with these creatures is truly interesting with the Baby Elephants behaving just like Human Babies, naughty, playing and running around trying to catch the attention of everyone.
After the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage, we take a short drive to the Giraffe Center.
About the Giraffe Center:
The Giraffe Center was started as a refuge for the endangered Rothschild Giraffe, translocated from Western Kenya. The Center is the perfect location to see giraffes, eye-to-eye, and feed them with specially made ha-pellets - which they take from your hands by their sticky 25-inch blue gray tongues.
Lunch at a restaurant in Karen area.
We proceed to Mamba Village, a crocodile and ostrich farm (“mamba” is the Swahili name for crocodiles).
About Mamba Village:
Mamba Village is famous for its Crocodile Farm. The pens are home to an estimated 70 Nile Crocodiles. Four Maasai Ostriches can also be found strutting around their pen with grace. Visitors often come into direct personal contact with them when given the opportunity to feed these gallant birds. The experience is always satisfying.
We have the option of visiting either one of the major museums in Nairobi – the Karen Blixen Museum or the Nairobi National Museum. This will depend on availability of time, based on the time taken on the other attraction sites.
Dinner at the Hotel restaurant or similar.
Overnight at Windsor Golf Hotel and Country Club.

About Amboseli National Park:
The park is located 230 kilometers south of Nairobi and close to the Tanzania border and Mt. Kilimanjaro. It encompasses 39,206 hectares (392 km2; 151 sq. mi) in size, at the core of an 8,000 square kilometers (3,100 square miles) ecosystem that spreads across the Kenya-Tanzania border.
It is famous for being the best place in Africa to get close to free-ranging Elephants among other wildlife species. The Elephants were made famous in the documentary series, Echo and Other Elephants, by renowned Wildlife Conservationist Sir David Attenborough and Cynthia Moss.
Other attractions of the Park includes opportunities to meet the Maasai People and also offers spectacular views of Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa and the highest free-standing mountain in the world.
In Amboseli’s case, her beauty lies in her big skies and far horizons, combined with swampy springs and dry and dusty earth, trampled by hundreds of animals.
Amboseli has an endless underground water supply filtered through thousands of feet of volcanic rock from Mt. Kilimanjaro’s ice cap, which funnel into two clear water springs in the heart of the park.
However, the climatic pendulum can swing from drought to flood, and in the early 1990’s ceaseless rain, changed Amboseli into a swamp. A few years later the rains failed and the grass-covered plains turned to dust. You will witness this cycle of life first hand.
