We missed the presentation, didn't hear anything about it going on. The gift shop there is GREAT and after all the awkwardness in negotiating prices, we came back and... More

It offered a convenient and comfortable place to see giraffe up close. We fed them and touched them. A presentation on protection and conservation of Giraffee was given and found to be very informative. A Great experience.

I love going here because you get to have an up close, 1 on 1 experience with the giraffes and other animals. I think it's a great place and very fun to be a part of.

For those who want an up, close and personal wildlife experiences with Rothschild giraffes, I recommend you stay at the premier Giraffe Manor, a distinct country home adjacent to the center or better still stay at a city hotel and visit this site for your experience with this tall species.

Of course it is spectacular to feed and touch the giraffe (one giraffe), but there is nothing else. I expected some guiding, see more giraffes...

Great little centre which is really quick and doesnt take much time. Best to avoid the weekends and rush hours. The staff are really friendly and strict about the proper way to feed the giraffes which is good.

My second visit and first in a long time. Still a fun place to go even without kids ( who particularly enjoy feeding the giraffes). the only downside was that being a busy weekend day, most giraffes were staying away from the feeding point as they had probably had more than enough goodies from the large throughput of visitors. probably...

Wonderful experience in a lovely location and with the opportunity to kiss a giraff! A bit overpriced for non-residents to get in, but part from that...all good!

While it was a fun experience to be able to feed the giraffes the price is unexpectedly high. More than double that of the David Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage which is a much more educational experience. There is nothing there except the giraffes, and while I was lucky that I was the only visitor on the occasion I went and so... More
