We visited the centre with our 2 children and we loved the experience, we were able to feed and touch the Giraffes.The centre is very informative and is there to raise awareness for the endangered Rothschild's giraffe.
It is a must visit if you have young children, have a few hours to spare and a nice break from the traffic jammed streets of Nairobi.

This is not your typical zoo like place. The giraffes have plenty of space. They come up to greet visitors when they feel like eating. Visitors can feed them with vegetable pellets available for this purpose. You can even get a kiss if you hold the pellet between your lips. Try it it's a really cool experience

I visited this center expecting to see at east a few dozens of giraffes but to my disappointment I could see only 5 ( just five) of them. 2 were near the stage and we could feed them the food that they gave us. I saw 3 more giraffes at a distance in the premises. They charged KSH 1000 as entrance fee and i felt it was a rip off.
I expected to see orphaned giraffes, injured giraffes being taken care of but I did not see any activity of that nature.

I've had a great time in this center, where I was able to pet the special Rothschild giraffes and feed them. It was a really interesting visit. This is worth a visit whether you are adults, teenagers or even going with small children.

This is a lovely facility and great experience. The educational portion is well done and interesting. I would go early in the morning to avoid the crowds.
