“Slimey-handed fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

Had a great time visiting the giraffes! Grab yourself a handful of pellets and step up to the observation deck and hold out your hand for a black tongued surprise!

Well, I suppose it's not all that all surprising that a giraffe would (gently) lick the food out of your hands. But it's a great time for folks of all ages.

“Amazing Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013

We enjoyed seeing the Karen Blixen museum and the tour, although we wished that all the rooms were open to see. The Giraffe Center was cool and we were able to feed the giraffes and get some great photos. Definitely recommend these sites!

“In Africa......out of Africa”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Even if I hadn't seen the movie, this museum is excellent. Karen Blixen was an amazing person and her home is exceptional. Do visit, don't hesitate. Did not know she was in the coffee business and saw her coffee roasting machinery.

“Nairobi best Excursions”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Nairobi walk in the National Park, one of its kind! Very rarely can you find a park or a zoo where you can feed the giraffes! Historical sites too..
