Above: Here I am, unable to resist feeding a friendly Giraffe.
Right: The Giraffes live a semi-natural life.
|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.
