1.The Giraffe Centre
The Giraffe Centre is one of a handful of conservation centres in the world that breed the endangered Rothschild’s Giraffe in captivity and reintroduces them into the wild, helping reverse the downward spiral in their numbers. Founded in 1979, the Centre was established as a nature education centre, with programs for sensitizing school groups and other visitors on conservation and environmental issues.

Attractions
The opportunity to observe the Rothschild’s Giraffe at close quarters and feed it is simply priceless. The Giraffe Centre has a raised feeding platform that places visitors at eye level with these animals. In the afternoons, visitors to the Centre are given pellets to handfeed the Giraffes. Needless to say, this activity is the main attraction at the Centre, with most visitors getting their pictures taken while in the act. These gentle giants, having been accustomed to humans, like to converge at the platform and flick their tongues out for the pellets
.
