A great way to spend an hour or so if you are in the Karen area. Feeding Giraffes is not an experience you would get in the UK, so make the most of it. Our ten year old daughter loved it and provided us with some great photo opportunities.

Great little spot to meet, pet and feed a giraffe! Up close and personal. Beautiful location - you can see giraffes lazing in the sun. Worth a visit!

Giraffe center is a fun 30-60 minute diversion that can easily be combined with e.g. Karen Blixen house and Kazuri Bead Factory in/near the upscale Karen neighborhood of Nairobi. 700 KSH (April 2012) entrance fee and you are eye to eye with a number of giraffes that will eat out of your hand (treats provided free of charge by staff)...

Lots of fun for a quick trip in Nairobi. Beautiful animals. Not a big place, but the giraffes are the important thing, and you can get right up close to them.

Lovely to see these animals up so close. The return to the wild that the centre are doing is excellent. Well worth a visit

I love giraffes, so might be a little biased here, but this was one of my favourite parts of the trip. To get so close to these animals was amazing and to stand and feed them on the viewing platform and come face to face really puts into perspective how big they really are (this also provides great photo opportunities)...

Feeding giraffes, eye to eye, kids love it, and I did as well. The staff are great explaining and answering all the questions you might have. Nice little activity. The centre gives East African residents, making it a cheap outing.

We live in Nairobi and have taken both of our children there as a kind of, right of passage, i guess. THey loved it, most recently, when they were 4 years old and 2, they each fed the giraffes the carrots we brought. it was a great day. They ran around and generally had fun once we had run out...
