One of the most exiting experiences of my life was feeding a giraffe! This animals that are huge approach to you with their long necks in order to take a small bite out of your hand! It is not very common the places where you can actually interact with animals and this is a must if you are in Kenya,... More

We really enjoyed our time there, we had to wait a little until the giraffes decided to get closer but at the end we could even get to feed them, i recommend doing it with your mouth!

Giraffes will take food pellet's directly from a visitor's mouth! Fun photo opps and also helps the giraffe population. A nice day trip excursion from Nairobi.

What an experience. Feeding giraffes and having a nose rub with them. What beautiful creatures. To witness them drinking water is a must! Again great care being taken to ensure their safety and recovery if problems arise. Lots of people at the same time would love to have spent longer learning more. Will return.

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
