“Feed a giraffe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

We got to feed a giraffe here, but if you are going on safari, you will be seeing a lot of giraffes, so it might not be worth your time to visit the center....unless you really want to feed the giraffe, which is cool too.

“Their tongues really are blue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

If you want to see giraffes up close and personal you have to visit the giraffe centre. These lovely animals can be hand fed and some individuals seem to like having their ears tickled or necks scratched

“A great experience!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

We had barely got through the gate before we were given a handful of feed and coming face to face with a hungry giraffe, and it was amazing! The keepers are very friendly and there is an informative talk on the giraffes which was very interesting. We had a great time!!

Friendly giraffes who are not at all afraid of you. They love carrots, you will find them available there. We got very nice photos.

“Nice visit but grossly overpriced”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Nice little place in Karen. They charge non-Kenyan resident patrons KSH 1000 (€ 10), which compares unfavourably to other attractions such us the Sheldrik park and the Crocodile centre.
The visit lasts no more than 30 minutes, and the guides sem to be willing to give you the mare minimum - unless you make them understand that you tre prepared to tip them generously.
Frankly, had we missed this visit we would not have had many regrets.
