Giraffe Encounter

Connect with our reticulated giraffes like never before!

Our new exclusive giraffe feeding will give you a chance to hand feed one of our resident giraffes some of their favorite treats. You will be in awe of their long necks, rough tongues and adorable ossicones. In addition to the feeding, you will have exclusive access to giraffe experts that will help you get to know each member of the herd on this guided experience. Just watch out for the giraffe drool!
