I visited the centre during a day trip through Nairobi and while I didn’t stay long, it was a lot of fun. There’s a raised viewing area from which you can feed the giraffes (if they’re peckish). I got to do this, and there’s nothing...More

They are doing a great job here. It was way too crowded and no control of the kids groups. Very rud3 and out of control

It was exciting to be able to feed the giraffes. They easily eat out of your hands. It may be a little sloppy, but hand cleaning stations are nearby.

Got to feed daisy whilst I was there. She was very gentle, beautiful and majestic. Was honestly awesome to be able to get up close and personal with these animals. I’d never really seen a giraffe before.

Great place in Nairobi to get up close and personal with Giraffes. Affordable entrance fee includes two handfuls of pellets which you use to feed the giraffes. The center itself is a little small and it does get a little crowded at times but definitely...More

It’s way smaller than I thought and I had no idea where the giraffes were from - whether they were saved animals or whether it’s just like a zoo... you can feed the animals with snacks (even using your tongue), which was quite cool

It is a very nice and unique experience to see and feed the giraffes, be aware though that there are a lot of tourist and a times can be a nightmare.

It’s a pretty cool place and you get to feed a giraffe. But, that’s all there is, aside from the gift shop. Don’t plan on this taking too much time. The pics show you pretty much everything there is. I’m glad I went. I was...More

Sorry cannot help, having only travelled on this occasion to Kenya so cannot advise on good times of the year to travel. Maybe get in touch with Giraffe Manor directly and they may help you?
