Our visit at the Giraffe centre was really fun. We got to feed the giraffes and my boyfriend even got to kiss one! We also attended a little information session and we learned cool things. If you are in Nairobi/ Karen I highly recommend!!

Great place to visit. Where else can you kiss a giraffe? Amazing creatures. Loved our visit to this place.

Giraffes are up front when you walk in and guides provide you with food and will take pictures...pretty cool but after hanging out with giraffes and washing hands/face probably only stayed about 20 minutes...they have a walking nature/giraffe trail that I did not do

The Giraffe Centre was great! So cool to get to feed the giraffes and learn about the Rothschild subspecies. The hotel you can stay at here also looked amazing, though we did not stay there.

One of our first sites we visited while on our 31/2 week safari trip. The guides were very informative about the life and conditions of the giraffe populations in Eastern Africa. It was fun to feed the giraffes from an elevated platform.

An amazing opportunity to pet giraffes and feed them. It was such a heart warming experience and one I will treasure for the rest of my life.

Experience some great giraffe interactions at this centre! Their long prehensile tongues are so amazing! We loved seeing the sweet warthogs also. Some great photo-ops!

I understand that the Giraffe Centre has done tremendous things for the Rothschild giraffes and that the money it makes from the centre is vital for that project. However, I found most of this out online after visiting the centre. I wish that the centre...More

It was fun to be up close to the giraffes and get a good look at them. They are on diets so you are limited to two handfuls of food. Enjoyable, but after feeding them not much else to do..

Such beautiful animals and being so close to them is great. They are very used to humans so they are friendly and will eat from your hand and give you a kiss! You only need 30mins for this activity. Nice gift shop.
