Drove down to this place, since i had a day's time. If you are an animal lover, then you get to see giraffes up close & personal, else, forget it. Array of street shops, too expensive - but some good souvenirs to take home..

the place was crowded with tourists so it was a challenge to get good pictures. One could take a selfie and hand feed them. Spending an hour in that place was more than enough. A worthwhile visit and should not be miss while in Nairobi.

You are able to get very up close and personal with the giraffe here, feeding them and even getting some giraffe kisses if you are lucky.

Although this was a bit more expensive than seeing the elephants, you get to really get close to the giraffes. Feeding them and touching them was so incredible and worth doing. Some people even kiss the giraffes, though I feel like that might be a...More

I'm naturally suspicious of places like this. You get to feed the giraffes close up. I am sort of aware of dedicated work behind the scenes to support giraffes in Kenya but this place feels more like a fun park with a quick albeit engaging...More

As great as Sheldrick is, this was my favorite thing to do in Nairobi. The guides give you a ton of attention and are very knowledgeable about giraffes and other African wildlife. This is an absolute must see.
