This is a great place to visit, a little smaller than I expected but good all the same. They provide you with pellets to hand feed the giraffe.

We visited the giraffe centre in Nairobi with my daughter whose first time it was there. She had an amazing time feeding giraffes and even fed one with her mouth. It was definitely worthwhile and gave us lifetime memories. A must go!!

A bit disappointing as you meet a few giraffes and some warthogs. You can feed the giraffes, not that exciting, but great for the kids

They accept local currency. If they do accept USD it may not be at market price and you may end up spending more. Safer to use local currency
