In this article, we will have a look at the Giraffe Centre entry fees as of 2021. It is a world-famous tourist attraction located on Nyumbi Road, off Duma Road in Nairobi’s Lang’ata suburb – just fifteen Kilometers from Nairobi’s CBD. The Giraffe Centre was established in 1983 by African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (A.F.E.W. Kenya), an NGO that was founded in 1979 by the late Jock Leslie-Melvill.
It was set up to protect the last remaining Rothschild’s giraffes in Kenya. The Rothschild Giraffe is among the most endangered giraffe subspecies, with just a little over 300 alive in Kenya today. The Giraffe Centre also acts as a Nature Education Centre, educating thousands of children every year.
It is usually open from 9 am to 5 PM every day. For school groups, you will be required to make bookings one week prior and make plans to attend between 9 AM and 12 PM. For a fulfilling experience, it is recommended you plan for a 1.5 to two-hour visit. This gives you enough time to feed and interact with the giraffes.
