The Giraffe Centre was started by Jock Leslie-Melville, when he and his wife Betty captured a baby giraffe to start a programme of breeding giraffe in captivity at their home in Langata – home of the present centre. Since then the programme has had huge success, resulting in the introduction of several breeding pairs of Rothschild Giraffe into Kenyan national parks. It is located at Karen, approximately 5 kilometers from the centre of Nairobi.

 Located right next to the popular Giraffe Manor (hotel that features giraffes), you can stand on a platform and touch and feed the giraffes straight from your tongue.  It’s a great way to get up close and personal with giraffes and take great pictures as well.
