The Langata Giraffe Centre is situated on both the edge of the Nairobi National Park and the edge of the residential area known as Karen.
It resides on the grounds of Giraffe Manor, formerly the private home of Jock and Betty Leslie-Melville. It is now an inn, where during lunch, guests can expect to see a giraffe’s head swooping in a window in the dining room, begging for food. The park has a small herd of Rothschild’s Giraffe, which are an endangered species, and at the visitors’ centre there is a building with a walkway at just below the full height of an adult Giraffe. There you can feed them with specially prepared pellets provided by the staff. Great fun for all, not just the kids!
