Come face to face with some of the region's most endangered giraffes at Giraffe Centre. Established in 1983 as part of a long-serving conservation project to protect the East African Rothschild giraffe, this nonprofit organization provides educational programmes for the young people of Kenya. Entrance fees help support the cause, and you'll get to meet, feed, and even touch these towering creatures from a raised observation platform. A forest trail also provides a pleasant walk through the undergrowth (watch out for the warthogs). If you're feeling thirsty, head to the teahouse for some refreshment amid ambient scenery.

A place that inspires you to understand the meaning of life. Shows how majestic this creatures can be a place of solitude and wonder of what our eyes can behold in such a unique world and what a privilege to see such magnificent creatures roaming this world we live in. And to get close to them is a one in a lifetime experience that can not be missed.
A connection with nature. These animals are amazing creatures and the visit to the giraffe centre really exposes you to how magnificent giraffes are. You get to learn a lot about their living and we were fortunate enough to see a mating taking place.
