Great experience

The best experience feeding Giraffes. There was also a small presentation about how the centre came about. A must do experience when visiting Nairobi.

I still can't believe I got to hug a Giraffe! Amazing. We arrived early before the crowds (and the Giraffes weren't hungry anymore). My first encounter was with Stacey the giraffe who head butted me because I didn't have any food in my hand - hilarious or so my husband found it any way. The matter was rectified quickly by...

If you have a zoo in your local area, this is very similar to what they have. You basically just feed the giraffe's and listen to a talk on them. Not much different than what most zoo's in the US have

Oh what a special day. We went and were completely enthralled with all the giraffes there. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Make sure to get a handful of food nuggets to feed the giraffes. There is a special way to feed them and give it a try. You get to feed the nuggets to them from your hand... More

Went with my nephew and friends yesterday. It was nice to be up close with the giraffes and be able to feed them. This is, however, not an all day activity. It can get really crowded with everyone trying to feed and take pictures with the giraffe. Don't plan this as a day tour. You would be able to do... More

Another must see when in Nairobi. You get to see the giraffes in their habitat, learn about them and even feed them. Great for adults and kids alike

It was a very exciting experience for me. I saw Giraffe at the Maasai Mara reserve as well as other parts of the world, but coming so close to one, was a very exciting experience for me. In fact some of the visitors were serving the pallets with their lips, in the process kissing the Giraffe!

Really good to get up close to the giraffes and to feed them. Not much else here, but that's ok - the giraffes are the stars.

We are spechless. It's amazing place for family visit. We are in love with jiraffe, and this centre is just fantastic! There are two souvenir shops at centre with different types of staff there. Made from wood souvenirs are very nice and not expensive. Our family recommends this place for weekends visits.
