It is an amazing experience. Staff there will help you with the feed for Giraffe. They would also ensure that you are able to feed, touch and have an excellent experience in feeding. You can take your time to feed. I think that place has at least 6 giraffes. Also there are few warthog. And a separate place for Turtle.... More

Whether you're a kid or a kid at heart, a visit to the giraffe centre is a pretty lovely experience. You'll be hard pressed to find a a place on earth where you can get as close to these beautiful creatures. After paying your entry fee, you're given pellets with which to feed the resident giraffes. If you're feeling brave... More

The giraffes are beautiful! Some are a bit aggressive, so don't get too close without supervision. I found a gentle giant and had such fun feeding her. The food is free. We had a guide explain to us all about giraffes and how they are being protected. It is fascinating! They have a nice gift shop as you exit.

Being in town but being so far. A close touch to wilderness and incredible experience of feeding giraffes. View on wild hogs that are getting Sun in front of your feet. However, be careful and do not do sudden movements when next to giraffe. If you are too close to giraffe she may just turn out of curiosity and kick... More

The Giraffe Center is a wildlife reserve conserving endangered species of giraffes. There is a pavilion that you can climb up to to feed the giraffes by hand. Lots of fun.

Very nice giraffes which you can touch and feed. It's a short visit and there is not much else to do around.

Could be slightly overrated in my view however one gets that once in a lifetime chance to get upclose with the giraffes. The beauty is that you get to interact with these gentle creatures on a personal level as each one has a name, and the guides get down to giving details of their individual traits and unique features.

I took my nieces and nephew for a visit, and they loved every bit of it. They fed the Giraffes. They were a bit tense at first, but got brave when they realized that the giraffes were not harmful.

It was fantastic to see the giraffes and be so close to them. There was no sense of rushing and the staff were extremely friendly.
