Today starts with a short drive to Bran for our included visit to the castle (known as Dracula's Castle).

We then leave Bran and after a short drive arrive for our included visit to the Bear Sanctuary, which was created to rescue bears found suffering throughout Romania where they had been pets or attractions for restaurants and petrol stations. The bears now live in 160 acres of oak and hazel forest which is run by the Millions of Friends Organisation.

Nairobi

Kenya

A 'MUST' whilst you're there?

"Visit the Giraffe centre to hand feed giraffes, watch baby elephants during feeding time at David Sheldrick, feed wild monkeys in the park, eat at Nairobi street kitchen and party at K1 Clubhouse. "

Do I book in advance?

"If you're not on a tour, it's important to book places like David Sheldrick in advance as they are a true sanctuary and only open to the public for 1hr each day to limited numbers. It can book up weeks in advance."

What can I do at night?

"Nairobi has a lot of restaurants and bars. My favourite is K1 Clubhouse with regular DJs, life music, an outdoor beer garden and club vibes! Great drinks, food and atmosphere!"

What do you love most about Nairobi?

"I love Nairobi so much because the people are so welcoming. Locals have always been so kind and helpful and of course, Kenya is so beautiful it keeps me coming back for more!"
