“Hello Mr Giraffe”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice outing, really nice for kids. Get to interact with giraffes, feed them and pet them. Quite disgusting to watch people kissing them! Location is deep in the heart of Karen, so make sure you go on a Sunday to avoid traffic.

“it was ok”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

too many tourists. The children had fun. But the giraffes were not that interested in us! worth visiting as it is close to city. but otherwise, you can visit a zoo.

“Fun way to interact with the Giraffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

A quick safe way to view an African icon. Have fun feeding the Giraffe! I wish there could have been more, but the giraffe that was there very friendly and interactive with the crowd.

“Nice Place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

I actually fed giraffes!!!

I visited the center in June 2011, it was the first time i could touch and feed giraffes,,, I actually loved it!
A young guy gave us explanations about the center and its objectives and talked about the different subspecies of giraffes and many more details.
If you don't have time for a Safari, the center can be a nice experience!!
