“Good attractions to fill in a few hours”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Unfortunately the elephant show had already started when we arrived as we had trouble locating the entrance. Sounds system wasn't all that good but it was fun watching the elephants being bottle fed.At the Giraffe Center it was fun to hand feed the giraffes but beside that there was not much to do.

“A must visit in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

The place is a definite go for nature/animal lovers. You can see/feed/touch giraffe here. The experience of feeding this tall yet lovely animal is very interesting. Also they have rhinoes, boars and other animals.

“One of the Highlights of my trip to Kenya”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

I really enjoyed visiting the Giraffe Center. You get to feed and pet the giraffes and, if you dare, have them kiss you. The staff is friendly and helpful, they can teach you a lot about the giraffes if you ask questions. For me this was one of the highlights of my trip to Kenya, as you can get so close to these awesome animals.
