This was a cool place to visit after going to the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage. You see endangered Rothschild giraffes up close. You can feed them and touch them which was fun. Was only a few dollars (forget how much in shilling) to get in. We spent about an hour there...not much more time is needed.

We came here twice during our stay in Nairobi (more out of circumstance than want) and had a blast both times. They usually have 1 or 2 "keepers" in attendance at a time that will hand out what looks like wood pellets that you can feed to the giraffes either at ground level or on their balcony. They say Max... More

This is a nice place for an outing. The only place where endangered reticulated Giraffes are preserved from extinction. The only place you can watch and feed the most rarest reticulated giraffes in the World. The only place that creates memories as you come so close with wildlife. It is also very near the city of Nairobi and has very... More

The Giraffe centre is where you can feed the giraffe, right up close, a wonderful , unforgettable, experience. However AFEW does so much more for giraffe and wildlife, and eduction than just the giraffe. A visit to the giraffe Centre is a must if you are in Nairobi

Place is quite small and sometimes might be overcrowded by school children , but it is very nice experience. Do not forget to go to the nature trail just opossite the... More

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
