It's only an observation platform there where you can feed the giraffes, but if you want to do something in a day, it's a good trip.

We had a week end away in Nairobi and wanted to pack as much in as possible........we were lucky with our driver Alex from the pool of taxis at the Fairview Hotel who was not only a good driver but an amusing raconteur. He certainly knew his wildlife and made the tour of the Nairobi National Park great fun. Saw... More

The Nairobi National Park is amazing. We went on a day-long safari and saw lions, baboons, giraffes, gazelles, and many birds. Then we went to the Giraffe Center and kissed a giraffe!

Visited the Giraffe Center on our first day there, so it was fun to see the giraffe's up close. The Karen Blixen Museum was interesting also. We had a good guide and it was a nice start to our 2 week trip.

Was worth the visit evoking memories of Kenya's colonial past .Much of the interior is original and efforts have been made to recover or replace items from Blixen's time that may have been lost. Out guide (Elizabeth ) was really good.

Just what I expected at the Museum and the Giraffe Center surpassed all my expectations. The giraffe was very gentle and loved eating out of your hand. We also discovered that the Pumbas have to kneel down to be able to eat because of their lack of necks!

The Karen Blixen Museum has very little to offer. On the other hand. the Giraffe Center is well worth the stop. You can admire the giraffes up close and the staff on site is very friendly and helpful.
