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 in a ranch in Western Kenya when the Giraffe Centre 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.

At the Giraffe Center the visitors can site on top of a platform and stand eye to eye with the Giraffes. The visitors 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. This is the closest that one will be able to get to the giraffes in Kenya.
