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. Put Giraffe Centre into our Nairobi trip itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Nairobi.

  • It's a small place but offers the contact with the giraffes. It's an interesting attraction in Nairobi.

  • This was an amazing experience. We were able to see the giraffes up close and feed them. However this place gets very busy and the ramp where you feed the giraffes gets really crowded. Best to go there early in the morning when it's less crowded.
  • This was a great experience. Small but well organized that you won't lose time- as soon you step in, and your are already mingling with giraffes... Such a beautiful creature.
