Nairobi, Kenya. 1


During my summer holiday, I, for the first time, visited the Giraffe Center in Nairobi. I took a bus there from the CBD and after alighting at my stop, I asked a lady who had also just alighted from the same bus for the directions to the Giraffe Center. Apparently she worked almost next door to the place. During the short walk there, we engaged in simple conversation and then she said to me, “Don’t tell me you’re going to Giraffe Center to see giraffes!”

What else would I be going there for, ma’am? 😮

See, the reason she said that is, most of the people who’ve been brought up in the city, like her I presume, have taken numerous trips to the place ever since they were in pre-school. Well, I wasn’t brought up in the city and was super excited about the idea of getting up close with these beautiful creatures! 🙂

That aside, I did enjoy my time there. Paid about 3 USD to get in, fed the giraffes, kissed a couple. I’d advise you to get there early morning though, since it gets kinda crowded later on.

Also, there are only about 8 giraffes, and only 4 were present during my visit. I wish there were more.












Always be kind.

      1. That’s so wonderful to hear. 🙂 I just noticed their hooves and fur were gleaming. Very rare for those kinds of places!

  1. Love the photos of the “twigas.” Reminds me of the time I took my son there a number of years ago, and the fond memories I have of the great people, animals, and landscapes of Kenya.

    1. Hey Dawn! Seeing you write the word “twigas” just put a smile on my face. 🙂 I’m impressed that you remember some Swahili after all that time! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed your time in Kenya. ❤
