Nairobi Giraffe Center ..try feeding a giraffe



The Nairobi  Giraffe Center is located only 10 minutes drive from the Karen Blixen Museum. Since Morten loves animals, it made sense to go:)

A video from out visit:) (can’t see the video, refresh the page)

The Nairobi Giraffe Centre was founded in 1979 and is an african fund for endangered wildlife in Kenya. They do a lot of work on in the centre with school kids, teaching them about the animals and educating about sustainability.

The centre itself is very small, when you enter there is a small shop and cafe area to the right, and to the left is an amazing view over the landscape with the giraffes long necks breaking it up.


They give out “giraffe snacks” at the entrance, which makes the Giraffes come really close. From an elevated platform you can pet and feed the Giraffes and get a very close look at this beautiful animal.

It is a lot of fun feeding the giraffe and just seeing them up close, I have never been this close to a giraffe before!

We both had a lot of fun, not only Morten, who is a true animal lover:)

The centre is really small and once you have fed the giraffes your done… that’s it:/

Tip: We spend about 20 minutes there and payed 1000 KSH (11 USD) to get in. I think it was worth it, but wouldn’t want to pay more:)



Hope you get to checkout the Giraffe Center next time you go to Nairobi:)

    Nairobi Giraffe Center is a nice place and a good chance to get really close to the giraffes. In Mombasa they have a similar thing in Haller Park. You should definitely go visit Haller Park when you come to Mombasa 🙂 They have hippos and all kinds of other animals too.

    1. Hey Jonas, I will definitely check out Haller Park next week, it sounds like great fun:) Have actually never seen a hippo before:)

  2. Wow I’d love to see a Hippo 🙂

  3. The video is a great touch, I feel like I’m there too (and I love the way they move)

    1. They are surprisingly gracious in their movements, when you think of their size.
