“Head over heals for Giraffes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

Bundle these sights, which are all in the same area and approx. 20 km from the city center. All are worthwhile! If you've read 'Out of Africa', the Karen Blixen home is a must.

“Amazing close encounter”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Great place, we got up very close and personal with these beautiful animals. The guides are volunteers (we learnt after) and do everything they can to inform you and encourage the giraffes to feed.

“Awesome place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

This place is a must! Getting to hand feed giraffes whilst stroking them is a great experience. Add to that the mouth feeding or kissing (see the link here: http://www.hoodedcrow.net/Kenya_2011/Kenya2011.htm) and it was a scream. This was my second visit and was a highlight of the holiday for my younger daughter who had seen the videos from the first trip. I'll go again definitely.

Another tip, ask them to give you the talk about their work and giraffe's. They have some bones from giraffe's as display items and it's fascinating.

“Fun place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Had a great time here. Giraffe come up to a viewing platform allowing you to feed them by hand, pet them, and even get a "kiss". Real unique expereince

“great!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

its great, you get to feed the giraffes up close (located in Karen). It doesnt take more than half an hour, at the most, to be there... more than that is not worth it, and it is pricy at $12. but great experience!
