The Langata Giraffe Centre, run by the African Fund for Endangered Wildlife, is a sanctuary for the rare Rothschilds giraffe. Here you can observe, hand-feed or even kiss the giraffes from a raised circular wooden structure, and it is quite an experience. It's a good place to get the close-up photographs that eluded you on safari.
In the grounds of the National Museum, there's a recreated Kikuyu homestead and a Snake Park, where you can see black mambas, some sad-looking crocodiles and giant dudus (creepy crawlies). The guided nature trail nearby isn't particularly exciting, being so close to two main roads.
