Giraffe Center DayTour Nairobi ,This centre, which protects the highly endangered Rothschild’s giraffe, combines serious conservation with enjoyable activities. You can observe, hand-feed or even kiss one of the giraffes from a raised wooden structure, which is quite an experience. You may also spot warthogs snuffling about in the mud, and there’s an interesting self-guided forest walk through the adjacent Gogo River Bird Sanctuary.

Giraffe Center DayTour Nairobi ,The Giraffe Centre is open from 9 AM to 5 PM, seven days a week. Feeding and tours operate throughout this time. Remember to carry a valid Identification Card with you. Proceeds from entry fees go towards our conservation education work with students and teachers across Kenya.

Things To Do At The Giraffe Center

Pet a Giraffe? Check.  Kiss a Giraffe? Check. At the Giraffe Center you are able to site on top of a platform and stand eye to eye with the Giraffes.  You are given small pellets to feed the Giraffes and there are unlimited refills.  Across from the Giraffe Center is a small nature walk that features two other giraffes and a variety of unique plants and birds.  .  This is the closest that you will be able to get to the giraffes in Kenya.

Getting to the Giraffe Center

  • Via Local Transportation (Matatu)

The same Matatus that you take to see the Nairobi National Park can be taken to get to the Giraffe Center.  You can either take two Matatus that will originate form the Nairobi Railway Station or one Matatu that will start from the KenCom & Ambassador Buildings.

From Nairobi Railway Station

The first will go to Galleria Mall in the neighborhood of Nairobi called Karen and will cost 30 Shillings.  Look for Matatu #124/125 (combined number).

Walk towards the Galleria Mall ,and you will see the Matatu station that you will take to the Giraffe Center(20-40 shillings).

From Kencom & Ambassador Buildings

Take the City Hoppa or the KBS (Kenya Bus Service) from the buildings listed above and they will take you directly to the Hardy Bus Station which is near the Giraffe Center.  Do not go all the way to the Hardy Bus Station, let the collector know that you want to go to Giraffe Center.

After you get dropped off you will see signs for the Giraffe Center.

  • Via Taxi
After arriving at the Galleria Mall you can find a slew of cars parked on the side of the road.  They will try to hustle you for the fare which should be 400 Kenyan Shillings.  There is no point to take a taxi to just the Giraffe Center since many tourist attractions in Nairobi are nearby like the Elephant Orphange & Nairobi National Park.  I got a group from the local hostel and we shared a taxi for the entire day for  4,500 Kenyan Shillings.  The normal rate is 4,500 to 5,000 Kenyan Shillings.
