“Misleading Attraction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Disappointed. This place was billed as "a park where you can see giraffes, feed and see different types of giraffe." On arrival, I paid the 1000 shilling entrance fee only to find that it is not a park, its just a platform (very crowded one) where you can maybe feed a giraffe. I saw ONE giraffe which kept wandering away.There is nothing else to do there. You cannot access anything except the platform. There is a trail but it doesnt have access to any giraffes just trees.

“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014 via mobile

This centre, established to protect the endangered Rothschild giraffe, is wonderful. The giraffes are close enough to feed and touch; educators are there to offer more insight; nature trails to walk among other animals. We all loved it, and it is worth doing.

“Learning about giraffes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

I saw giraffe's bones for my first time in my life. Beside of interacting with giraffes, this place is excellent to learn about giraffes.

“Kiss a giraffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

It's really fun to feed them and even occasionally steel a hug...but this is also pretty touristy. I would say if you have kids, you must go, if you don't...you could skip.

“It's fun place to visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Seeing Giraffe so near and able to feed them is fun! Small children can also enjoy to feed and they also have some educational video inside the Centre. Guide is available.
