“Up close and personal with a Giraffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Giraffe Center is well worth a visit. While on Safari you can only watch these majestic creatures roam the plains, at the Center you get to stand below them and really feel their heights than climb up a petting stand to feed, photograph and well, maybe even get kissed by one! I did have a giraffe there try to eat my hair scrunch!! Watching children feed them is priceless and the setting is beautiful and peaceful. There are other smaller animals around and some nice gifts in the gift shop. We often take children from our Kenyan school there and students of all ages enjoy it. There is a small educational exhibit that is quiet good too.

“Loved the giraffes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We visited this center on our first day in Nairobi after long plane ride(s). Was a great introduction to Kenya. Yes - we did see more giraffes in the following days - but this was a peaceful, educational setting. Loved the gift shop too.

Great place to get up close to the Giraffes.

We really enjoyed feeding them at head height with there large tongues, great photo opportunity.

A must if you get the chance to visit.

“A good initiative but somewhat overrated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

The attraction is to see one of Kenya's giraffe species - the Rothchild - up close and feed them which provides for some good photo opportunities. Nice for families with kids but for the real thing Nakuru National Park still looks more natural to observe these giraffes. Nothing much else to do there but to learn a bit about giraffes.
