I highly recommend a visit even for a few minutes to this special place where they protect this almost endangered giraffe. They do a wonderful job taking groups, teachers, students and tourists and locals to educate them on the importance of this special creature.

This is a nice short visit. You can hand feet the giraffes or have them take food from your mouth (a kiss). About an hour long but you can go at your own leasure.

Kissing a giraffe is gross, but also ridiculously amusing. Worth visiting when you're in Nairobi, especially with another attraction nearby (Karen/ Nairobi National Park, David Sheldrick, etc).

We were allowed to feed and touch the Giraffes which was out of this world. I thought I knew what to expect from an animal sanctuary, but the Giraffe Centre by far exceeded all my expectations

It's a good few hours spending at the Giraffe Centre. You have a chance to feed the Giraffe closely and even kiss the Giraffe. The gift shop is reasonable price.

Even after a 3 week Safari, it was really cool to meet up close and feed the Giraffes. It was inexpensive ($10 US). You can also catch an education discussion in the roundhouse a few times a day.

Spent a couple of hours here. Cheap entry and not really overcrowded. Not an abundance of things to do but if like me,your an animal lover it doesn't matter so much. Giraffes eat pellet out of your hands so great opportunities for pictures. There's also...More
