It was thrilling to actually pat a Giraffe and feed them close-up - sticky tongue and all.....good experience.

Its not everyday that one feeds wild animals (giraffes) and Giraffe center offers that opportunity. One takes away some pleasant memories of sticky slimy tongue slurping your hand and of course nice pictures of long grey lingua wrapped around the arm. Excellent for older children.

Don't miss it out. This place is very interesting. You will spend there no more than 1/2 hr but it will be well spent 1/2hr

My friends and i really enjoyed being this close with the giraffes. The most exciting part was feeding them seeing them pick up there food with their tongue oh that was really something. The is a gift shop inside the giraffe Centre lots of fab things one can buy.

Have you ever had a one-on-one with a giraffe? Have you ever fed a giraffe? Have you ever kissed a giraffe? Well you should! The Giraffe Center is a fantastic space where you can meet and feed the giraffes and even let them give you a kiss...if you dare. Definitely worth a visit for everyone.

I went to the giraffe centre with some guests from overseas who had never seen a live giraffe, leave alone seeing one so close and also being able to touch them. They were really fascinated and could not believe that they could actually be able to feed them and also how beautiful and graceful these creatures are.

Giraffe Сentre is a small area, inhabited by giraffes. The most interesting thing in it is the building, which allows up to the level of a head of an adult giraffe and interact with the animals and feed them. This is very exciting! However, the Giraffe Centre is located on the outskirts of Nairobi. There are a lot of traffic... More
