Giving to a Non-Profit Organization in Kenya
The Giraffe Centre in Nairobi, Kenya was founded by a non-profit organization known as the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife (AFEW). AFEW aims to educate the community locally and abroad of the issues faced with wildlife and the environment.
The ticket you purchase for entry into the park is donated directly to the organizations efforts in Kenya. This is not only the perfect stop for a family or school children, but also for anyone that appreciates wildlife and preserving their existence!
As you enter the park, walk towards the gates that separate the guests from the giraffes. You will find buckets of animal feed and a washing station to clean your hands.
Don’t be afraid! Grab a few pellets, hold your hand out flat, and feed a giraffe.
Walk up to the club house to stand eye level with a giraffe and to gaze out at the crowds. There’s also live educational presentations.
Familiar with popular Instagram picture taking spot Giraffe Manor? You are steps away! The Giraffe’s that you see in the Giraffe Centre are the same ones the roam over to Giraffe Manor. They poke their heads through the windows for a unique experience.
