We walked over to the Giraffe Center while we were staying at Giraffe Manor. We were able to interact with Betty, who was kind of pushy, and baby Jock, who was the sweetest. The guide on duty was able to tell us about each of the giraffes and teach us about the species. We also went on a short nature... More

Wow! Having travelled from Australia who wouldn't be excited about seeing a Giraffe up close! The centre has lots of information, guides to explain how giraffes live and the three different types of giraffe and it is a great introduction to the wildlife of Agrica.

On safari you can easily see hundreds of giraffes but never from this close. And you never get to feed them or pet them, which makes this an awesome experience. A giraffe lick is something different and feels a lot cleaner compared to other animals including humans.

We loved feeding Helen at the Giraffe Centre. What a great morning to see the wonderful giraffes. The gift shop was great as well. They have so many items and the prices were fantastic. This was so much better than the elephant orphanage because we got up close and personal with the giraffes and had as much time with them... More

During a layover at NBO, we felt we had the time to visit the Giraffe Center which we missed during our two day stay earlier in the week. So we hired a car and driver at great expense and proceeded to the Park. My friend purchased the tickets while I had my bags checked. I was shocked when he came... More

Wow what a fun experience! Hard to believe that we were warned to watch out for headbutts.These animals appeared so graceful and even-tempered. They certainly liked the handfuls of food pellets we were given to feed them.We got some great pictures of these creatures on an eye-to-eye level quite different from the photos we got on safari. This is a... More

Nice the see the giraffes and feed them. The tortoises and warthogs were interesting as well. I got a wooden sculpture there that I did not see again on our holiday and it was my favorite souvenir .

A can't miss experience! We went early and there was one giraffe there for the pellets (which are made partly of molasses). The giraffe Sally was so sweet, you just hold the pellets and she gets them with her long tongue, slobber is involved. They tell you you can hold the pellet in your teeth and the giraffe will give...
