This day after your breakfast you will have an adventure as you visit the former Bamburi nature trail currently called Haller Park. This is the only place in Kenya where you can see the giant tortoises in large numbers and go close to even touching them or sitting on them. This is a place where learning takes place as nature leads the talk. You will be guided through the trails to the fishponds and through the crocodile firm. Here also, science takes place as you will be taken through a lecture of how the fish and the crocodiles are bred, how and why albino crocodiles, and fish come up.

 

Agriculture also has its way as you learn how the plants and trees have adopted the salty soils and the symbiotic relationship between the millipedes and the casuarina trees.
