Nairobi Day Tour Giraffe Centre explores the Giraffe Centre located at Langata, approximately 20 km from the centre of Nairobi, Kenya.
The Giraffe Centre is a wonderful and refreshing experience undertaken during the African Spice Safaris excursion in Nairobi.
Nairobi Day Tour of the Giraffe Centre also known as the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife gives a completely up close and personal interaction where guests have the opportunity to view giraffes as well as feed them.
The centre has rescued, hand-reared and released around 500 orphaned giraffes back into the wild since opening in 1979.
Young giraffes born at the Centre were translocated to; Soysambu Ranch near Lake Elementaita, Kigio Conservancy near Gilgil and Sergoit ranch in Eldoret. Others were recently translocated to Mwea National Game Reserve and Ruma National Park.
Today the Rothschild Giraffe population in Kenya is about 300. The Nairobi Day Tour of the Giraffe Centre combines conservation, education as well as a very hands-on experience for visitors.
Not only can you observe the Giraffes in their natural habitat but you can also get up close and personal. From a raised wooden platform you can observe, hand-feed and pat the Giraffes. Standing 4 meters high, Giraffes eyes are beautiful. Kiss a Giraffe on our Nairobi Day Tour of the Giraffe Centre.
Getting covered in juicy Giraffe saliva as they use their gigantic tongues to lick tasty treats from your mouth is another experience altogether. The Giraffe Centre is a Non-Profit making organization whose main objective is to provide conservation education for school children and the youth of Kenya.
All education programmes are offered to them free of charge. The Giraffe Centre derives 90% of its funds from the entrance fee collected and from the sales in the gift shop and teahouse.
Therefore, our Nairobi Day Tour of the Giraffe Centre and purchase from the shop and teahouse contributes immensely towards conservation education to the Kenyan youth.
