Langata Giraffe Centre - Home to Native Rothschild Giraffe

Langata Giraffe Centre The Giraffe Centre is located in the Langata region of Nairobi which is around 5 kilometer from the city centre. This giraffe centre is being run by

The African Fund for Endangered Wildlife Kenya (A.F.E.F. Kenya) which is a non-governmental, non-profit making organization.This organization was founded by Betty and Jock Leslie-Melville in 1979.
The purpose of starting this centre was to provide protection to the endangered Rothschild giraffe which is native to the grasslands of East Africa.

The Rothschild giraffe had lost their natural habitat and were on the verge of extinction due to the rapid agricultural developments in Western Kenya.

The importance of this park can be gauged from the fact that once upon a time there were only 130 Rothschild giraffes left in whole of Kenya, due to the efforts made to protect these giraffe their population has multiplied and today there are around 500 giraffes in this park.

Though the main objective of starting this park was to save the endangered giraffe from the verge of extinction, but with time this centre has developed as one of the best places where they provide free environmental education for the visitors and the Kenyan youth.

With a view to protect and support the wildlife, this park is also supporting other conservation projects all over Kenya. On a visit to the giraffe centre you get a chance to feed the giraffe from a raised observation platform which is all-together an experience of a lifetime.

Not only that you also get a chance to view numerous warthogs which roam freely with the herds of giraffe along with a nature walk with 160 species of birds.

The giraffe centre is open from 10.00 am to 17.30 pm on all days of a week. The entrance fees are 500 Kenyan Shillings for adults and 250 for children.
