“Got to feed a giraffe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Worth the bumpy ride out of Nairobi. Small giraffe sanctuary with great gift shop. If you are lucky, you will get to feed the giraffes from a raised hut.

“Good cause, but pricey”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

a good centre and a good experience to feed giraffe. But prices have increased again, making them one of the more expensive centres to visit.

“So that's what a giraffe feels like!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Excellent experience. Their tongues are purple. The ears are bone. The neck feels like a horse. Reasonable cost and a good time. Nice gift store.

“Lovely animals and a great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

Absolutely Worth a visit.
The animals are really beautiful and you can get real Close to them. The staff is also very friendly. We went there before lunch, and was some of few visitors at that time. So we got really good service.
You can feed the giraffes With Your mouth. A fun and wet experience.

“French kissing a long necked girl in a place called Karen, Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2013

This is an excellent part of the conservation effort for the Rothschild Giraffe. The centre has a number of breeding mothers and releases their offspring into the wild eventually. It also has entertaining warthogs. You can stand in a tall house and the giraffes come to see you if they'd like to. You get to feed them. I was encourage to hold some food pellets in my mouth so that the giraffe would come and take it from me. The staff are excellent, highly knowledgeable and informative. We got some great photos of a mother and two week old baby giraffe!
