“Feeding the giraffes is for sure something to do”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013

Although the entire experience takes less than 15 min (plus a nice wilderness walk if you are upto it) getting to actually feed a giraffe is a wonderful experience that I really do recommend. The place also has as impel cafe where you can eat a quick lunch

“Good fun but give it 30 min tops”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Nice and clean establishment with a short lecture by excellent guides which complements the giraffe feeding session. Some of the giraffes are even kissing the braver visitors if you can hold the pellet btw your lips. Enjoy and move on after half an hour.

“Giraffe Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

We spent an hour or so at the Giraffe Center and enjoyed feeding the giraffes by hand. They are beautiful. The staff is kind and helpful. We had lunch at the Blixen Museum but were too late to tour the house. The nearby Mazuri bead center is amazing as well with a wonderful back story and beautiful jewelry to purchase at prices far below what it costs in the US.

It was a really lovely experience and not too crowded so you were able to stand on a platform and hand feed the giraffes. Lovely...

“Definitely top 3 choice.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 18, 2013

You should absolutely visit this place if you are in Nairobi. How often you have an opportunity to feed a giraffe? Or even kiss with a giraffe? :) Prices were reasonable but it would be nice if there's a guide who tells something about those gorgeous animals. (Ages, personality etc.) Maybe we just missed him...?
