This place just brings out the kid in you. The main attraction are the giraffes and all they want you to do is feed them (pellets are provided by the staff). They were friendly and actually very calm in the midst of all of us...More

It's fun to get close to the giraffes and feed them. Be aware that the place is small, so you probably won't spend more than an hour there. If you are in Nairobi, it's well worth a visit.

Awesome to see and stay close to the giraffes. Feeding then is also a unique experience. You get very close to then, very easy to touch. Nice to learn more about giraffes.
