In our recent trip to Kenya, we had a chance to visit one of the top sights in Nairobi; The Giraffe Centre.
It is located around 20 kilometers away from the Kenyan capital.
✦ What To Expect From Giraffe Centre
Giraffe Centre is part of the Giraffe Manor.
This is an exclusive boutique hotel, that is on private land in the Langata suburbs of Nairobi.
The most fascinating thing about Giraffe Manor is its herd of Rothschild’s giraffes.
These giraffes visit in the morning during breakfast and also in the evening. Sometimes, they poke their long necks into the windows in the hope of a treat.
To visit Giraffe Manor, you have to make a reservation.
Giraffe Centre offers a chance to feed, or even kiss and learn more about giraffes.
There is a small charge for entry but no limit on the amount of time that you can spend with the giraffes.
In addition, there is no prior booking required to visit the Giraffe Centre.
✦ The Services Provide at Giraffe Centre
The staff are very welcoming and encouraging especially to the children.
They provide generous the supply of pellets to feed the giraffes. Also, clear information is provided on how to feed the giraffes or even how to kiss them.
In our case, a member of staff showed us how to kiss a giraffe.
✦ How Are The Giraffes?
The giraffes are really friendly because they have been accustomed to humans.
We enjoyed feeding them with the provided pellets.
Certainly, up close with these beautiful species is a truly fantastic experience. When you are in Nairobi, you can’t miss out on this experience!
