“National Park is a must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

I signed up for this tour through Viator, but since I was the only one on the trip, I asked to just see the Park and the Giraffe Center. The Giraffe Center is really not worth the time but the National Park was AMAZING!! I saw SO many animals and birds and monkeys that I almost felt like I was on Safari! There were herds of zebras, tons of giraffe, rhinos, ostriches, lions, antelope, impala, buffalo, warthogs, etc. Great place to spend a day - highly recommend!!

“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!
