“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

The Karen Blixen Museum is peaceful and beautiful and pretty much exactly what you would expect after seeing the movie (Out Of Africa) And at the Giraffe Center you can feed the giraffes from your own mouth to theirs - memorable!

“Nairobi - Karen Blixen Museum & Giraffe Cebter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The Karen Blixen Museum was moderately interesting unless you're an Africa buff. The Giraffe Center was interesting and it's fun to feed the animals at eye level from the center's balcony.

“Twiga- Giraffes in Swahili”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

The Giraffe Center was difficult to find (for the cab driver who was quite possibly stoned) but worth the wait. You can hand (or mouth) feed giraffes and the volunteers are knowledgeable and friendly. There is also a nature walk that is easily self-led and beautiful. A little pricey but worth it if looking for things to do in Nairobi.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I visited in Giraffe center in april 2010. We got good information about giraffes and to feed them also. Quite small park, but just enough for me. Loved the giraffes! In area is also a restaurant and souvenier shop.
