Giraffe Rothschild Centre Day Tour is a brief day excursion from Nairobi to Giraffe Centre & Giraffe Manor Nairobi - the only sanctuary for endangered Rothschild giraffes.

The Giraffe Centre in Nairobi is an amazing place to visit. It started as a rehabilitation project to rescue the Rothschild Giraffe. There were only 120 giraffes left on a ranch in Western Kenya when the Giraffe Center was founded. The actual non-profit organization is called the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (AFEW). The original house of the founders has been converted into a very impressive boutique hotel called the Giraffe Manor. The centre is located roughly 12.5 miles (20km) away from the centre of Nairobi.

After arriving at the centre and paying your entrance fee, you can listen to a short and interesting talk about the giraffes of Kenya and the endangered Rothschild. Then, you can ask the nice staff members to give you some giraffe food (pellets) so you can feed them. The pellets consist of dietary supplements, as the giraffes eat mainly tree leaves. It is important to give them one piece at a time, as it is more fun, and you will avoid being bitten.

If you dare, you can place one of the pieces between your lips and get close to the giraffe so it gives you a lovely wet kiss! After taking many pictures with these beautiful animals, you can also take a look at the warthogs (pumba) and tortoises, buy something at the souvenir shop or grab a snack at the café. Before leaving back to Nairobi, remember to enjoy a nice walk in the nature sanctuary across the centre.

There, you will see some local flora, birds and nice walking trails where you can spend as much time as you like.

0900 Hours: The Giraffe Centre & Manor Day tour starts from your hotel after breakfast and drives to the Karen suburbs where the sanctuary is located.

Arrive and start feeding the giraffes as you hug them and take pictures up close with these humble giants.

1300 Hours: The Giraffe Centre and Manor Centre day tour ends with a drop off in your hotel in the city.

The Giraffe Centre and Manor Centre Hotel are great places to stay around giraffes and learn about their conservation efforts in Kenya.
