“A great, affordable educational experience”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Make an hour or two in your schedule to visit Giraffe Center. After seeing them from a distance in the parks or conservancies, I was still amazed at how tall and big they were when I was able to get closer. If they are near the education platform, you can see their beautiful eyes and long, long, lovely eyelashes even.

Some larger groups, especially with kids, got rambunctious around the animals which seemed to make them move off. If quiet and respectful, they come in for a close view.

“Adorable giraffes in close up”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

This is a must when you visit Nairobi! Go feed the cute giraffes and let them lick the food from your hands. They are adorable. Many kodak moments are guaranteed here.

“Giraffe Giraffe Everywhere”
Reviewed January 30, 2012

The Giraffe Centre is a great outing for families to go to. The downside is that every time I have been it has been extremely busy. But you do get to feed a Giraffe as many times as you want. It is a unique experience. The guide does do a talk, sometimes difficult to hear, above all the visitors noise. But my sister's have toddlers and they thoroughly enjoyed feeding the giraffes. They also have a curio shop onsite.
