“Feeding the giraffes was the most intriguing thing”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Wow this place is awesome. I have been here several times and i keep on going back. Watching the tall creatures walk briskly or feeding them at 4pm it the most fascinating thing you can ever do. Some folks kiss the giraffe as well...! A place not to miss while visiting Nairobi.

“Fun experience”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This centre, which protects the endangered Rothschild giraffe, allows visitors to feed the giraffes - feeling and watching their huge tongues take the food from your hand is quite an experience! This is a great place for children. The centre also has wart-hogs and giant tortoises.

“Fun feeding Giraffes”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Good for a quick stop to feed giraffes and wart hogs. Kids will love it. You get a brief talk about the three types of giraffes in Africa and some informative information about conservation.

“Feed the giraffe”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

It was great being up close the giraffes. You can actually feed them and if your brave enough, you put a bit of food between your teeth,, they will take it and you can get a kiss. They're tongues are rough!
