“Up close with Giraffes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 NEW

My friends and i really enjoyed being this close with the giraffes. The most exciting part was feeding them seeing them pick up there food with their tongue oh that was really something.
The is a gift shop inside the giraffe Centre lots of fab things one can buy.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 NEW

The first time i went there,was when i was at College like 5 years ago.I really like the place,some years later,i received some clients who wanted to visit the Place,i organized for them the transport and time to Visit the Giraffe Center.
If you want to visit there,plan to go Earlier? People you surely go there in Big groups..You will feed the Giraffes or even kiss them,if you are lucky enough..you can take a photo with them. Enjoy your Visit

“Sticky Tongues :D”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014 NEW

Have you ever had a one-on-one with a giraffe? Have you ever fed a giraffe? Have you ever kissed a giraffe? Well you should! The Giraffe Center is a fantastic space where you can meet and feed the giraffes and even let them give you a kiss...if you dare. Definitely worth a visit for everyone.

“Nice :)”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 NEW

I visited the Giraffe centre at least dozen times in my 4 years in Kenya; i took all my friends and visitors there. Very nice, especially for children.. Howevre, in 4 years time I saw very little improvements there. The centre gets hundred(s) of visitors on daily basis, the price for non-residents is not petty..yet, very few improvements.. But the experience of feeding giraffes is unique - I loved it! And all of my friends did, too.. It is a bit far from Nairobi (given the current traffic jams) but it is worth the effort. This is a "must see"

“A day with the giraffes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014 NEW

I went to the giraffe centre with some guests from overseas who had never seen a live giraffe, leave alone seeing one so close and also being able to touch them. They were really fascinated and could not believe that they could actually be able to feed them and also how beautiful and graceful these creatures are.
