On our recent trip to  Kenya, we  had a chance to visit one of the top sights in Nairobi; Giraffe Centre. It is located in Karen suburbs, around 20 kilometers away from the city centre. This sanctuary offers the chances to meet, feed 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. I also loved the fact that there is no prior booking required.

The staff gave us clear instructions and  they were particularly welcoming and encouraging towards children.  We were shown how to feed the giraffes and then provided with a generous supply of pellets. One member of staff even showed us how to safely kiss a giraffe. The giraffes are really friendly because they have been accustomed to human. We enjoyed feeding them with the provided pellets and kissing them. Coming up close to these beautiful species was a truly fantastic experience!  When you are in Nairobi, you can’t miss this experience.

 “If you’re twenty-two, physically fit, hungry to learn and be better, I urge you to travel – as far and as widely as possible. Sleep on floors if you have to. Find out how other people live and eat and cook. Learn from them – wherever you go.” – Anthony Bourdain
