“excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

This place is well worth the visit, it is well run it has facilities but most of all you get so close to the giraffes. You are allowed to feed them great inter action with them very pleased with the visit. As part of the visit a your guide brought us around the nature trail also attached to the park, I was impressed with her knowledge and the interest she had. Go visit its worth it 1000KS anf if you have a driver with you he is free . Our driver hadn't been before and was well pleased with the visit.

Enjoy

“Misleading Attraction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Disappointed. This place was billed as "a park where you can see giraffes, feed and see different types of giraffe." On arrival, I paid the 1000 shilling entrance fee only to find that it is not a park, its just a platform (very crowded one) where you can maybe feed a giraffe. I saw ONE giraffe which kept wandering away.There is nothing else to do there. You cannot access anything except the platform. There is a trail but it doesnt have access to any giraffes just trees.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

This centre, established to protect the endangered Rothschild giraffe, is wonderful. The giraffes are close enough to feed and touch; educators are there to offer more insight; nature trails to walk among other animals. We all loved it, and it is worth doing.

“Learning about giraffes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

I saw giraffe's bones for my first time in my life. Beside of interacting with giraffes, this place is excellent to learn about giraffes.

“Kiss a giraffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

It's really fun to feed them and even occasionally steel a hug...but this is also pretty touristy. I would say if you have kids, you must go, if you don't...you could skip.
