Giraffe Center Day Tour

One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things

Giraffe Center Day Tour

The center was founded by the late Jock Leslie-Melville and his wife Betty Leslie-Melville in 1979 following the harsh conditions that the Rothschild’s Giraffes were living in since they had adversely lost their habitat in Western Kenya. The center was initially founded to mainly save the endangered Rothschild’s Giraffes hence the main programme they have is breeding them in safe conditions. The center also offers environmental education and supports projects which are environmental oriented which include education to teachers and lecturers where they get to realize their role in educating their students and people in general about conservation. This has made many young people become more conversant with matters related to wildlife and environmental conservation. It also helps people to interact with giraffes which helps them learn more about them hence can maintain, conserve and protect them too.

The Day Tour 

You will be picked by our guide from your hotel. At the center you will meet the lovely Rothschild’s Giraffes. You will learn about the breeding program and also about giraffe biology. You will also get an opportunity to feed the giraffes from your hand, hug and even kiss these lovely “Tall Blondes”.
