If you don't have time for a more extensive safari at the great parks in Kenya, this is something that gives you a glimpse of what you are missing

“Feed a giraffe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

My first encounter with a giraffe was feeling the lips pick up feed from my hands. They are surprisingly soft and gentle. Walking through Karen Blixen's house and remembering scenes from the movie "Out of Africa" made everything come alive. She was an incredible woman that left an indelible mark in Kenya.

“Our favorite Giraffe "Helen"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

What a Wonderful experience feeding the Giraffes. I've always admired these beautiful and elegant creatures that God created and boy are they BEAUTIFUL! This was the limelight of our vacation to be able to feed Giraffes. We fell in love with "HELEN"...what a beauty! This is definitely a museum to visit if you can't go on a safari.
