to Giraffe Centre to see and feed the famous Rothschild giraffe.
Giraffe Centre is situated about 15 kilometres far from Nairobi
and not easy to reach there unless you take a taxi.
Giraffe Center is a non-profit organization founded by Betty and Jock Leslie-Melville
in 1979. Situated in Langata, just 20 km outside Nairobi City Center, the Center
is dedicated to educating the Kenyan youth in conservation of the environment
and the preservation of endangered wildlife and their habitats.
is home to endangered Rothschild giraffes, only found in the semi-arid regions
of Africa where trees and bushes are plentiful. They live to be about thirty years
old and their main enemy is man, who kills them for their meat and hide. Their
main defense is their keen eyesight, running speed (up to 35 mph) and their powerful
kicks. The conservation of the Rothschild became necessary following the destruction
of their natural habitat in Western Kenya and their slaughter in Uganda during
Gen. Iddi Amin's era.
There are over 500 Rothschild giraffes in Kenya today
including seven at the Center. Their conservation is a success story in Kenya
and the world.
Giraffe center also home to the leopard, tortoise and boasts over a hundred acres
of undeveloped and undisturbed indigenous forest, the remnant of the natural forest
that once surrounded Nairobi.The forest is an extension of the type occurring
in the adjacent Nairobi National Park and the Langata Ololua forests, which have
identical tree species. The forest also has an impressive variety of bird species,
which can be viewed throughout the year.
giraffe center is a wonderful and refreshing experience to enjoy as an excursion
while in Nairobi. The tour gives a completely up close and personal interaction
where guests have the opportunity to view giraffes as well as feed them.
