This place is amazing! Visited this twice already and for both times, it is gratifying to see a place where the animals are taken cared of and healed.

You probably have seen pictures of Giraffe Manor in Instagram or other social media when the giraffes poke their heads into the breakfast room or your balcony. If you can’t afford to stay there you can still see the exact same Giraffes at the Giraffe...More

This is an awesome park. Located within Nairobi. Pay a ticket and get in. There are numerous Giraffes. You can take pictures and feed them. They will take the grains, that you get there, from your hands. It is a truly a great experience.

The staff are so knowledgeable and you are up close and personal with the giraffes. You feed them, pet them and they’ll take food right out of your mouth with their tongue! If you’re bold like that, I wasn’t! Pretty cool experience and great souvenirs...More
