Brilliant time feeding the giraffes and being very close to them. Little education centre as well, perfect for the kids which various quizes set up. The giraffes are very tame, and some people braved up and let the giraffes kiss them!! the saliva apparently cures the common cold - there are hand washing facilities/toilet an a little cafe for little snacks and drinks.We loved it!

This nonprofit organization is doing important work for the endangered Rothschild Giraffe (population 300). Their successful breeding and reintroduction efforts are priceless? and they let you feed and kiss Miss Daisy :-)AMAZING encounters with giraffes!!

I had an incredible time in Nairobi, but one of the absolute highlights of my trip was visiting the Giraffe Center and feeding the giraffes! We went during the afternoon and it was not busy at all so we had the opportunity to ask plenty of questions and spend time observing the giraffes. The best part was being able to feed the giraffes! I will never forget this part of my trip and the pictures are priceless!!Unbelievable!!!

We visited the giraffe centre and were so pleased. The attendants were very helpful and extremely knowledgable. The price was very fair and the experience will never be forgotten. It is small and I would recommend a visit of 1 hour as there is not a lot to do. Information, looking at the giraffes, interacting with the caregivers and feeding, hugging and even getting a kiss from the giraffes! I am 42 and my son is 15. We visited from the US. It was great for us both!!!!!!!Upclose and Personal

I absolutely loved the visit to the Centre. I enjoyed hand feeding the giraffe and alowed "Daisy: to feed from my mouth. It was a wonderful experience and wished my grandkids had been along with me. .
