Special to get eye-to-eye with these giants, and feed them too! It is good that they are being protected from men.

This space is small, but there are people on hand when the Giraffes are near the wall and up by the gazebo. So I really enjoy this place, they have about 5-6 giraffes and they come and go as they please. Meaning they (giraffes) have...More

You can see Masai giraffes in the Mara, but this is the place to see the Rothschild giraffes. You get to hand feed the giraffes and see the warthogs snap up any droppings.

The giraffes are great and it’s exciting to hand-feed them. But the whole thing is just a bit too commercial. Even expensive at $10 pp when compared to the Sheldrick nursery. Avoid going right after a visit to Sheldrick’s since the whole crowd moves to...More

A short visit to the park is must on your trip to Nairobi. You get a chance to see and feel the giraffes from close. If you want you can feed them too. Go for a unique experience.

Sorry cannot help, having only travelled on this occasion to Kenya so cannot advise on good times of the year to travel. Maybe get in touch with Giraffe Manor directly and they may help you?
