Lovely!

Our group really enjoyed coming face to face with the giraffes who in turn really enjoyed being hand-fed. A lovely experience!

This is an amazing experience. The grounds are lovely and there are a lot of crafts to purchase. The giraffes are very friendly, especially if you feed them. Just don't tease them, because you might get a headbutt. You can also watch them run out on the grounds. The center is an inexpensive and easy taxi ride from downtown.

Share some time with the giraffes. It is a great place to enjoy with your families. The staff are incredibly friendly. You will enjoy the time spent here. The food in the restaurant can improve (I ordered a burguer and it wasnt any good)

I went to a reserve near Nairobi to experience being with the 'Reticulated Giraffe' There are three sub species I think and we could get close to them and feed them also. Please also consider visiting the elephant sanctuary. For me visiting these animals was very special. Experiencing being a few feet from a mountain gorilla was probably the crowning... More

The giraffe centre breeds endangered Rothschild giraffes and releases them into the wild. You get to see giraffe up close, in fact they will lick a food pellets from your lips if you let them. Useful little cafe for a lunch break and a good shop for souvenirs.
