... When we were there at around 1pm the place was packed with tourists and the giraffes weren't interested in being fed anymore.

this is really fun to do as you can pet and feed the giraffes - especially fun for children. The entrance fee was very nominal - and gave one a good feeling that you are contributing towards something positive.

I love going to the Giraffe Centre. I live here yet and been a couple times but still enjoy going to see them. It is a place you will spend a maximum 20 mins there but you will have a blast. Another must do if you are in Nairobi

I love the animals but I felt this could have been more than it really was.
It's basically a giant viewing platform where the keepers coax a giraffe over so you can feed them. Great if the giraffes fancy a feed otherwise you stand looking at them looking at you from a distance. It does get busy as most people visit the Elephant orphange then go straight to the Giraffe Centre afterwards as they are in the same area & a short drive away.
If you are doing the National Park or any safari then I would give this place a miss.

You really do feed the giraffes--like Daisy. It's definitely up close. The road getting there is under construction right now.
