While we enjoyed this, it's way over priced for what is on offer. Once you have fed a giraffe, and walked through the shop that's it.

Worth visiting but very touristy. Cool to see the animals up close. You can even feed them and get French kissed by one if you put the food between your lips. Fun for kids.

The Giraffe Centre is a must visit when in Nairobi and quite rightly on the tourist circuit. We go at least once a month with our two kids and they love feeding the giraffes. Never ceases to make us all smile, and great to know that they are doing such good work in trying to protect these creatures.

Alongwith the Orphanage, this is a must visit for anybody! Feeding Rothschild giraffe may sound childish but people of all ages have a good time here. Have won may a bet on the colour of a giraffe's tongue - you must check for yourself! Kids ofcourse have a ball and its wonderful to see school kids from near and far... More

I love this place- I have been several times, and always take visitors there. It is a favorite of all who I take. Close up and personal interactions with the friendliest giraffes. Very peaceful place, staff is very friendly and they let you just keep feeding the giraffes..for free. Only cost $10 USD to get in, you can stay for... More

This is a wonderful experience. The giraffes are up close. You feed them. You can kiss them. Nice coffee shop with good food and friendly staff. Been there now twice great place. Do not miss it while in Nairobi if you like giraffes.

This is a fantastic little place. Not only can you feed a giraffe but you can kiss one as well! Those guys have one serious tongue!!! :-) The feeding platform is raised so you are at eye level with the giraffe. It's a great experience being so close, they are such beautiful creatures. I particularly like that the food pellets... More

After staying at the Giraffe Manor, where giraffe's come up to the hotel at breakfast, sticking their heads in the windows and sharing breakfast, we walked over to the neighboring Giraffe Centre. Thanks to the owner of the Manor, we learned to feed the giraffes pellets by putting it between our lips. The giraffes come right up to you and... More
