“Must do in Nairobi”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

Where else can you feed, touch, get up close and personal with a giraffe? Very exciting either before or after seeing them in their natural habitat on Safari. Worth stopping by, it only takes 30 minutes!

“Kiss a Giraffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

If you're going to the Bomas or Karen Blixen this is definitely a stop. doesn't take more than an hour but lots of info on giraffes. Staff is very helpful. Nice snack shop and gift shop.

“Interaction & Education the key”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

Excellent Giraffe interaction as well as a very informative talk from our guide. The hour we spent left me feeling I had really connected with the Giraffes and learnt so much more about them.

“Great way to see giraffes up close!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

This was my first time seeing giraffes in person and while this is no safari, it is definitely worth it. Although it seems like the giraffes are just eating out of your hand all day, in reality what you are feeding them is just a snack. The giraffes live as if they were in the wild although obviously sheltered, and the end goal is to breed them and repopulate the giraffe population in Kenya which is dangerously low for at least one of the kinds of giraffe. Family friendly, knowledgeable people at the center, I thought it was a great visit! We went in the same afternoon as seeing the Karen Blixen museum so that's definitely doable and they are close to each other.
