Kisses From Chok ( Giraffe Center)


On mothers day we spent our day visiting other living creatures… We first visited the Elephant orphanage.

After that fun and exciting trip we visited the Giraffe center, Which my whole family thinks it was the coolest activity of the day.

The Giraffe Center was about 15min drive from the Elephant orphanage. And it was an amazing experience. It was truly the closest we have all been to a Giraffe.

And the Giraffe that we got to spend our moments with was super cute and fun and call Chok.

When we arrived we paid for 7 of us, which was Ksh 4,500 ( $45) total. And this is the price for non-resident.

After they gave us the palettes to feed them to the giraffe. You just lay the food in your palm and the giraffe sticks out his long slimy tongue. I was so scared to let him take the food off my palm, and I was shaking. The kids just got so excited and all over the giraffe.

Janet our nanny was scared too until she got comfortable around the giraffe.

Marcus was brave enough to get a giraffe kiss….yeap that’s right!!! he kissed the giraffe and it was nasty but funny.

We really enjoyed our time  there and We all said, now our new favorite animal is a giraffe..LOL!!!

Lots of pictures below for your viewing..

  1. Oh I love giraffes. When we saw them at Calauit Island in Palawan, Philippines, I was especially fascinated by their eyes. Did you notice that the middle part is square? And those lashes, OMG. 🙂

    PS: I hope you don’t mind if I steal a bit of your time and ask you to fill out this survey. It’s for my grad school thesis on travel accommodations, particularly on hostels. I wouldn’t really ask, I know it’s an imposition but I have to gather responses from non-Filipinos and well, I could really use your help. I promise it won’t take more than a couple of minutes. Thank you very much! 🙂
