Begin your half-day tour with a trip to the Giraffe Center in Nairobi. Admire the valuable work the non-profit organization is attempting to stabilize the rare Rothschild's giraffe population. Learn how over 50 of the striking creatures have been released into the wild, and see the young calves currently residing in the 120-acre (49 ha) site.
