“feeling the soft nuzzle nose of a giraffe was fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

this is really fun to do as you can pet and feed the giraffes - especially fun for children. The entrance fee was very nominal - and gave one a good feeling that you are contributing towards something positive.

“One of my favourites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I love going to the Giraffe Centre. I live here yet and been a couple times but still enjoy going to see them. It is a place you will spend a maximum 20 mins there but you will have a blast. Another must do if you are in Nairobi

“A bit disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

I love the animals but I felt this could have been more than it really was.
It's basically a giant viewing platform where the keepers coax a giraffe over so you can feed them. Great if the giraffes fancy a feed otherwise you stand looking at them looking at you from a distance. It does get busy as most people visit the Elephant orphange then go straight to the Giraffe Centre afterwards as they are in the same area & a short drive away.
If you are doing the National Park or any safari then I would give this place a miss.

“Up close with the Giraffes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2013

You really do feed the giraffes--like Daisy. It's definitely up close. The road getting there is under construction right now.

“If you're going on safari, skip this place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I was duly impressed when I visited the giraffe center, but only because I hadn't been on safari yet. If this is the only chance you'll get to see giraffes, by all means go. Feed them. Make out with them (no really, people do it. You'll see ... ) They're beautiful creatures. I also enjoyed the fact that many plants and trees had informative labels spelling out their medicinal uses. There's a lovely hiking trail across the road, too.
