What a fantastic place. As soon as you arrive you see the beautiful giraffes standing tall. It's incredible how close you can get to these gentle giants. Although they do warn you the giraffes can head butt (which I experienced thanks to annoying tourists doing the wrong thing) Being able to feed them with your hands or even your mouth... More

Getting so close to one of nature's most elegant species is a unique experience. Had a great time feeding the giraffes.

These giraffes are quite friendly and it's lovely to see them up close having seen them in the wild so much. It's a great place as they set out to raise awareness of the animal and the subspecies (all of which was new to me!).

Worthy a visit to see and feed these beautiful, kind and graceful animals; especially for young children the experience is very entertaining. Nevertheless, no need to plan much time for this; Could be combined with other attractions in the city, like the very nice Karen Blixen museum, the Nairobi National museum, the elephant orphanage etc.

Visited the Sanctuary, learned about the many different Giraffe species in Africa and Kenya, got to meet Stacy, the resident Giraffe Goof Off. She was a doll, got to feed her and got a kiss in return.

It was incredible to be so close to the giraffes. You get to feed the giraffes and you either hug or give them a kiss!

It's all about the giraffes and they expect to be fed with the free pellets if you plan on getting close. There's two viewing platforms, one from the ground and another elevated one where you're eye level. Staff were all great and generous with the pellets.

An interesting experience, it is nice to be at the same height as the giraffes. A little concerned about over feeding.

This was one of my favourite experiences EVER! I absolutely love giraffes and being able to be up close and personal with them was amazing! Feeding them, getting kisses from them and just being in their company was truly unique and really COOL! A must see if this is your first visit to Nairobi. Make a day out of it... More
