Share some time with the giraffes. It is a great place to enjoy with your families. The staff are incredibly friendly. You will enjoy the time spent here. The food in the restaurant can improve (I ordered a burguer and it wasnt any good)

I've visited twice and each time it's been really enjoyable. The animals can come right up to you which is very enjoyable for children and adults alike.

I went to a reserve near Nairobi to experience being with the 'Reticulated Giraffe' There are three sub species I think and we could get close to them and feed them also.

The giraffe centre breeds endangered Rothschild giraffes and releases them into the wild. You get to see giraffe up close, in fact they will lick a food pellets from your lips if you let them. Useful little cafe for a lunch break and a good shop for souvenirs.

Great place and happy to go and pay to support the charity as it does make a great difference to endangered animals. Great time feeding the giraffes and getting super close. One giraffe even licks your whole face..... Pretty busy though and only need about 30/45 mins there as not much to do. Def recommend visit though

It is a bit out of the way, so if you don't have a car and don't want to spend a million $ on a safari, it may seem a bit of a trip. But there are matatus that go to Ushirika Road from Nairobi centre for KES80 which is a good deal. The main attraction of the visit is... More
