“A Dream Come True”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2014

Just what I expected at the Museum and the Giraffe Center surpassed all my expectations. The giraffe was very gentle and loved eating out of your hand. We also discovered that the Pumbas have to kneel down to be able to eat because of their lack of necks!

“Giraffe Center is the most interesting stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

The Karen Blixen Museum has very little to offer. On the other hand. the Giraffe Center is well worth the stop. You can admire the giraffes up close and the staff on site is very friendly and helpful.

“Nice visit”

Loved learning a bit more about the character, Karen Blixen and some of her idiosyncrasies. Lovely museum.
The giraffe center was fun. Really enjoyed feeding the giraffes

“A "must"when you visit Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2014

These attractions are a “must” when you have time available in Nairobi. Ask your hotel to book a taxi for you for a full day and buy the driver lunch and refreshments during the day, that is expected. Start very early from the hotel and visit the National Park first, proceed to the Giraffe Centre where you will be able to feed these beautiful and amazing animals. The drive from the main gate in Lang’ata to Karen Blixens house is not too far and all in all, it will be a very nice day. Be prepared for heavy traffic when you drive back to the city centre from Karen.
