If you want to get into close contact with these adorable animals, this is the place. you will have the opportunity to feed and get kiss by giraffes, the world's tallest wild animal. This is a very educational Center that is doing a great job in educate children and visitors about wildlife and endangered animals.
They keep this giraffe, until they are grown up and return them to the wild.
The staff is very friendly and motivated, and they love their job.
Also you find here warthogs.

Tip: It was easy to buy souveniers here, kind of right prices, and do'nt have to deal with those gift places..and bargain wasting time.

Fantastic up close experience with gorgeous giraffes of various ages, cared for by experts. Very knowledgeable talks by excellent keepers, Plenty of time with them, viewing platform enables you to be at head level and interact with the giraffes.

If you want a hands on wildlife experience this is the place to go. You can hand feed and even kiss the giraffes here. You also can learn about their habitat and different types of giraffe.

The centre is relatively small but the interaction with the Giraffe's is really good. You will almost certainly be able to hand feed them from a variety of positions - their height, ground level etc....

There'sa small cafe to get snacks and drinks etc which is all fine...

Worth a visit - it doesn't take long - perhaps and hour tops....

I visited the giraffe centre in January together with a big group - so unfortunately, I don't know the price. All I know is that is was fun to feed the giraffes and see them so close. You can stroke them and almost cuddle with a few of them who are tall enough, since you are standing on a kind of porch on the 1st floor. If you want, you can also kiss a giraffe by taking it's food in your mouth. Remember to bring your camera! The centre also has a small museum/info-house and a souvenir shop.
