Such a cool experience! You stand on a platform so you are at the giraffes height and can pat them, feed them and pose for photos with them. If you're game enough put one of the feeding pellets between your lips and get a kiss from a giraffe!

You won't see many giraffe but you will experience of see then very close and you can fee them. There is nothing more to do there. One hour it is enough. Ticket is 1000 kes and you can pay by credit car. It is better going Early in the morning so there are not many school tours going at that... More

What an opportunity to get up close to a giraffe. Fantastic creatures, daughters adored feeding them and getting kissed by giraffes repeatedly. There are a few other things to see and some information displays, but for the children, nothing compares with feeding a giraffe!

If you'd like to get up close and personal with a giraffe, this is the place. There is a viewing platform where you can feed the giraffes, you can feed them by hand or with your face (if you fancy a giraffe kiss) which is definitely an experience if nothing else! On the platform there is also a teaching room... More

This is so obviously a tourist trap, however its a good one. Being able to buy feed and to feed the Giraffes is a extremely rare opportunity. Try putting the food in your lips the Giraffe will take it straight from your mouth....the Kenyan Kiss :) :)

First things first: The Giraffe Centre is both friendly, interesting and clean. There are a few self-driven activities in the central hut and most importantly: You will experience giraffes up close and personal - even feed them i you like. Sadly, there`s not much to do once you get there so you`ll probably be well advised to plan ahead and... More

Well worth the side trip and price of admission. Up close and personal with (reticulated?) giraffes. Nice little gift shop to go with it. Consider combining this with the nearby David Sheldrick WildlifeTrust (baby elephant & rhino orphanage) and the Nairobi Animal Orphanage when you visit the Nairobi National Park.

At first I thought this was going to be a very limited experience just seeing the giraffes and water hogs from the viewing platform, but then I took the guided walk which was really very pleasant and interesting. I saw lots of birds and plants, crossed over a river and through a wooded area where we found a field of... More
