Very fun to feed the giraffes. It's small and you just go in and feed and then leave but it's great to see the animals have the ability to leave the tourists if they wish. 1000KSH for entry and student and kids are 500KSH (Bring your university student cards)

A small, but nice venue where you can feed and touch the giraffes. Two giraffes are bu a fence where you feed them pellets given to you by the staff. Their slimy long tongues eat each pellet. Good photo op. A short presentation with video is given inside.

The rare Rottschild Giraffe, different from the ones of the maasai race that you see in the national parks, is bred and maintained here. Very tame, the giraffes offer the special experience of feeding and touching them, this alone worth the visit. Some very competent biologists also give at intervals interesting lectures about giraffes and other aspects of the regional... More
