My heart is still full from my visit to the Giraffe Centre this past Sunday. It had been on my Bucket list since I came back to Kenya.
Giraffe Centre is located in Karen, Duduma Rd and its accessible by matatu if coming from the CBD, self drive or an uber.
The Giraffe Centre is the creation of the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (A.F.E.W. Kenya), a Kenyan non-profit organization. One needs to pay for the tickets online prior to the visit and they vary in price depending if one is a citizen or not. The tickets are available on their website.
Safety measures have also been put in place since we’re still in the pandemic so no need to worry about that :).
Feeding and admiring the amazing giraffes is pretty much what one can do. This took us about an hour or so. On the visit we were issued with a small calabash each, with the food that to feed the giraffes and once it’s out, there’s no additional. At least that’s what happened on Sunday. So you’d really want to feed them sparingly and take your sweet time 🙂 like we did.
We, Audrey, Shiru and I, explored the centre abit and learnt about the different types of giraffes as well as their names and ages which was interesting.
Taking of photos is allowed and free of charge and we loved it!
Before leaving we discovered a cool nature trail that we explored.
Of course my day’s highlight was getting the Giraffe Kiss which was totally worth it.
Ps: You can get as many as you wish 😉
