    My trip to the Giraffe Centre with Isaac was amazing! He is an incredibly friendly guide and it was a dream come true to interact with the giraffes. We also visited the Elephant Nursery in Nairobi, which was an experience I will never forget! Thank you Isaac for your professionalism and for delivering a truly memorable day on my trip to Kenya!
