The Giraffe Centre in Nairobi is an amazing place to visit. There were only 120 giraffes left in a ranch in Western Kenya when the Giraffe Center was founded. The original house of the founders has been converted into a very impressive boutique hotel called the Giraffe Manor. The center is located roughly 12.5 miles (20km) away from the center of Nairobi.
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.
