This large centre a few miles from Nairobi is home to several giraffes, and although they run free, visitors can feed them from the top of an outdoor wooden tower, where they will quite happily poke their heads around for a couple of peanuts. They do not really like being petted, but they are very greedy! Inside the tower, visitors can learn more about giraffes and the different species that exist.
