Me feeding a giraffe on a grey and drizzly Nairobi July day (20k)
Above: Here I am, unable to resist feeding a friendly Giraffe.
 
 
 
   
          Right: The Giraffes live a semi-natural life.
Rothschild's Giraffe (24k) Usually, organised trips to the Karen Blixen House also take in the Giraffe Manor, which has been set up to protect the Rothschild Giraffe, an endangered subspecies.
There is a tower with educational facilities for school visits, and where you are high enough to feed the giraffes. Great for the kids, and hard for adults to resist.
There is also a short nature trail where you have to be careful not to trip over the friendly warthog, and there are feeding stations giving close-up views of the local birds and squirrels.
It is possible, though expensive, to stay at Giraffe Manor.
