“Love those animals”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

This is one of the places to see when in Nairobi, one can feed and caress these beautifull animals, very well kept with staff giving lectures on their history

“Everything you'd want to know about Rothschild giraffes”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

The centre is not huge so you won't need more than an hour here but the encounters with the giraffes are fantastic. While up on the viewing platforms you have the opportunity to feed the giraffes which make a great photo. Be prepared for the long black slimey tongue! There are also tortoises and warthogs in the Centre. Definitely worth the experience.

“Kiss a Giraffe”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Here you can hand feed a giraffe. If you are daring you can even kiss one.

Guides will tell you about various types of giraffes.

“Fun experience”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

Enjoyed the proximity to the giraffes from the viewing platform. Go when it opens and you will have the place to yourself while the giraffes are still hungry enough to eat from your hand.

“Hello Mr Giraffe”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Nice outing, really nice for kids. Get to interact with giraffes, feed them and pet them. Quite disgusting to watch people kissing them! Location is deep in the heart of Karen, so make sure you go on a Sunday to avoid traffic.
