Definitely on the top of the tourist to-do list in Nairobi; and a place that thrills adults and children alike. The novelty of getting face to face with a giraffe is exciting enough - you also get to feed them and take great photos up close! There's a great curio shop in the premises too where you can pick up... More

It is a place to talk to Girrafe in eye contact :) & Very well managed, well taken care Girrafs. very impressed with the program to save these animals. It displays the art work by children in Kenya and amazing facts about Girrafes. The feeding area became crowded sometimes, but stay there & wait for the people to move. Its... More

Not much to do here except one thing. Feed the giraffes. It can get crowded but wait for your chance. Also, there is a tendency for most of them to be far away with only one available so that kind of limits chances.

Best fun ever! This place is incredible. Well worth the visit if you have time. I did this before heading to the baby elephant orphanage. You only need a hour to see and play with the giraffe! They are quite placid and tame and you are encourage to kiss them! I got the best token tourist photo kissing Betty the... More

It is hard to decide if having a close look into a giraffe's mouth is worth your while, even if it may include a kiss. However, you will not be able to get that close during your safari.

A nice afternoon out. The talk was informative and interesting. We were impressed by their programmes with the local community and the various art work displayed from the local children to emphasise the conservation of animals in Kenya. It was a great chance to get up close to the amazing giraffes. The feeding area became crowded at points but if... More

The only thing one could do there is climbing in a tree house to feed a giraffe with cookies. Though very exciting in a way, it quickly turns out to a very disappointing experience to discover there is nothing else to be seen (with exception of a few nearly extinct turtles in too little cages for these animals to be...

Underwhelming unless you go across the street and walk with the giraffes in the open space - that was phenomenal!

Great chance to get up close with the giraffes. You can learn about them as well as feed them, even get a kiss is you want, several in our group did. They have interesting lips! Great for kids, too.

We came here after visiting the David Kendrick Wildlife Fund elephant reserve. It is very close and worth the time. We all enjoyed feeding the giraffes (no charge), watching them drink, learning from the docents who gave a little presentation in the building during our visit. There were bathrooms here which we utilized and they were clean. (I did see... More
