Feed a giraffe

The Giraffe Center does a nice job explaining the three types of giraffe. There is also an opportunity to feed them and I feed 'Eddie' which is my name too.

obviously very touristy, but still an awesome experience getting a gentle big kiss from a giraffe! we git there privately on a Saturday... was quite busy, but after waiting some time, we made our way to the front row too... to avoid super large crowds, it is best to go on a weekday...

Great visit after we had been to elephant sanctuary. We got to feed the giraffes and learn about the history. Great view of giraffe manor. Don't need much time there, very small and were only there for an hour.

There were a lot of people there so it was hard to get pictures alone. But you do get to feed, pet and kiss them, if you want

Here the main attraction is giraffe you can feed them with your hands and have a nice slefie with it. You can also understand about their habitat as they have small museum where they explain about the same.

Very fun to feed the giraffes. It's small and you just go in and feed and then leave but it's great to see the animals have the ability to leave the tourists if they wish. 1000KSH for entry and student and kids are 500KSH (Bring your university student cards)
