Giraffe Center getaway destination


Giraffe Center is one of the budget weekend getaways in Nairobi.

Located about 5 km from the city centre at the heart of the leafy suburb of Karen, this park is managed by Africa Fund for Endangered Wildlife.

Started by Jock Leslie-Melville in 1979 with only one baby giraffe, the giraffe sanctuary has evolved from a private educational centre to a major tourist destination in Kenya.

For only about KES 300, you get a chance to feed the giraffes, learn about different types of giraffes in the country and also enjoy a nature trail with the help of friendly guides.
