Lang’ata Giraffe Center on the outskirts of Nairobi

The giraffe center Lang’ata on the outskirts of Nairobi with an attached visitor center is one of the tourist highlights of Nairobi and the surrounding area.

The giraffe center in Lang’ata, a suburb of the capital, is less than 20 kilometers from the city center of Nairobi. Founded in 1979, the aim was to protect the endangered giraffe, especially the Rothschild giraffe, and to establish a giraffe breeding program. Just four years later, in 1983, the construction of the visitor center began in order to establish the giraffe center at the gates of the capital as a tourist destination.

The giraffe breeding has been very successful over the years and the giraffe center has also developed into one of the top attractions in Nairobi. Giraffe feeding is particularly popular with tourists and school children. In addition, several warthogs can be observed here in the giraffe center, some of them from close up, which roam around the enclosure with the giraffes and can be observed particularly well from the viewing platform.

Tip to visit the giraffe centre

You also want to visit the Rothschild giraffes and warthogs at the giraffe center in Lang’ata on the outskirts of Nairobi? The combination package consisting of a visit to Nairobi National Park, the giraffe center and the elephant rearing station of the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is also located in Nairobi National Park, is particularly popular. This is an exciting day trip that starts at 6 a.m. In the late afternoon around 4 or 5 p.m. you will be back at your hotel.

At most of the larger hotels in Nairobi, you can often book such a trip directly through the hotel. Or alternatively in one of the numerous travel agencies, for example on Moi Avenue in the center of Nairobi, the so-called Nairobi Central Business District.
