Also known as home of the Rothschild Giraffe, the Giraffe Centre is one of the biggest attractions in Nairobi. It came to existence in 1983. Not only does it serve as a popular tourist site but over the years the Centre has also become an educational institute for children. Many school trips are undertaken here. Students get to learn about the endangered giraffe species and efforts made to conserve and protect the worlds tallest animal by the founders of this Centre.
