Усадьба Жирафов (англ. Giraffe Manor) — небольшой особняк в Карене, пригороде Найроби в Кении. Вместе с Центром Жирафов является местом по реализации программы по сохранению жирафов Ротшильда. Здесь их разводят и выпускают обратно на природу, чтобы обеспечить существование подвида.
This is a must visit if you're within Nairobi. The giraffes are super friendly and if you're daring you may actually get a 'kiss' from one of them. This is where you attempt to feed the giraffe from your mouth and it licks the food off you. The giraffes are quite a marvelous site as it doesn't dawn on you how tall they are until they are really close to you. The entry charges are not very expensive both for locals and non residents. I'd highly recommend
This place is awesome. I went with a group of friends. The classes are actually really educative and fun, yet short. Like 20 min. The place is not so huge so family time and couple time is guaranteed to be interactive. A nice restaurant around here. The giraffes themselves are actively impressive. In my time of coming here, I met Edd, the largest male here. He is really huge and impressive. There are 3 species of giraffes which is also nice to see. The center does some really great efforts to help kids learn about giraffes and environmental conservation. Kudos to the team at Giraffe center.
This place should be on Nairobi’s Best Places To Visit. If such a list exists. It’s a relatively small place, but you can spend hours here interacting with the Giraffes. I can’t speak for all of them, but Daisy was polite, gentle, a class act that one. Feeding the giraffe is a humbling experience. I won’t lie, I was shook (translation for those 30 and over, sacred). Their tongues are slimy, but the saliva is antibacterial, you’re welcome. You do get a glimpse of Giraffe Manor , the hotel where you can feed the same giraffes from your window. The stuff is incredible, and helpful. A member of staff will give an in depth talk about the conservation efforts, the history of the center and more.
I had the best time feeding Daisy and Edd (the giraffes). The assistant were of much help, they answered all our questions and gave us lots of fun facts about the giraffes. I was lucky enough to get a kiss from edd😄, that was the highlight of the day. There is some cool art by kids on display, worth checking out!
A must visit if in Nairobi for a day or two. Easily found using Google maps. There's good car parking albeit not marked and so one has to be guided where to park. The guides are warm and knowledgeable. The offer treats to feed the girrafes,which is the visits highlight.
The fee for admission is reasonable. There's not much to do. It's basically just a giraffe feeding experience with a tacky gift shop on premises. School groups frequent and the kids feeding giraffes are of course adorable. The helpers are friendly and the giraffes are super cute. Overall I'd recommend going as a stop if you're visiting Nairobi national Park.
A great way to spend the weekend. The giraffes are lovely and friendly. There is also a restaurant that is fairly priced and a souvenir shop. You can also take the nature trail. Can be quite the adventure.
This is Nat Geo wild right before your own very eyes, live and direct. The wonders of creation makes you marvel even more at the creator. Now I have to add this to my list of "sites to visit at every opportunity". I'd love to have the young ones too next time. You can't get any closer than this. Don't take my word for it though, a trial will convince you. Cost? What's a few KSh compared to a lifetime experience?
Had a great time as always. Seeing and feeding the giraffes does need t take long so if you choose to take the drive out there be sure to do more like the nature walk or watch and learn about these magnificent animals
I loved every bit about this place. It was awesome interacting with the giraffes. The nature trail is amazing as well . The charges are low. I would recommend for families or couple's. Great place to be.
Feed and stroke the Giraffes. See how long there tongue is and learn some amazing facts about giraffes. I was there my second time and I will come back to support this center. It's a beautiful place...
Wonderful experience. This is a chance to interact with a group of calm giraffes who will eat gently out of your hand, or if you choose, out of your lips. US $10 or 1000 Kenyan shillings entrance fee, 90% of which goes directly to support the center. The center began for the purpose of saving the Rothschild subspecies of giraffes, which were endangered and are still in low population.
The place to visit to see & feed giraffes. If you're staying at the hotel there you will also get to feed them right from the dining room windows. Fun experience for children too but watch out for giraffes that aren't so fond of kids (the giraffes probably had a bad experience with one or several )
It's an awesome place and a must-visit if you are visiting Kenya and have half a day in Nairobi. This place gives you are chance to meet a tall and graceful animal called giraffe. They also let you feed them. The experience of being so close to them, touching them, and feeding them is exhilarating. There is an entry fee of 1000 shillings for foreigners and 250 or 300 shillings for natives. The entry for the drivers is free.
The place is set up in a very convenient way; you can be in the ground or upstairs feeding the giraffes. The place provides the food, which insures the health of the giraffes, and they provided it for free. I also saw other animals there, such as warthogs that just crawled around looking for leftovers from the giraffes. Such a fun experience, and such a great cause.
Well, if you want to see giraffes very close, it's a good place. The area for the animals is quite big, but they will come close to you. Small souvenir shop and local crafts market. It's very good for children.
This center is more like a petting zoo than anything else. It claims to be non-profit for education or whatever. The giraffes are not going to be sent into the wild. Having said all that. Getting to feed a giraffe is still pretty neat. The place is located a short 10 min drive from the elephant orphanage. Entrance fee is under 10$ for nonresident. You get a handful of feed free. There is a room where they do small lectures on the different types of giraffes.
It was fun to get up close and personal with the giraffes. They are such lovely creatures, so graceful and serene. Being able to feed them and take really close up pictures was great.
