Our giraffe feeding experience gives you the chance to feed our herd of giraffe.
It’s an exclusive opportunity to come face to face (nose to nose!) with our herd of giraffe, and feed them a mix of browse (that’s tree branches to you and me) and special giraffe pellets. You’ll be accompanied by a giraffe keeper, and you’ll be standing underneath our majestic giraffes inside their enclosure.

What happens on a giraffe feeding experience?
You’ll be welcomed by one of our giraffe keepers and after a short briefing you’ll enter the giraffe enclosure. You’ll feed our giraffes tree branches and a pellet that has everything they need to keep them fit and healthy.
They’ll eat from your palm, wrapping their long tongues around your hand. Get ready for a bit of giraffe slobber!
You’ll be standing behind the rocks at the foot of our walkway. When our giraffes see you have food they’ll be right over. There is nothing quite like a giraffe leaning down to take food from your hand. A giraffe will never seem so tall.
This is also your chance to ask our expert giraffe keepers all about our herd. Why do they have black tongues anyway?
Your giraffe feeding experience will last at least 20 minutes. It includes a souvenir cuddly toy giraffe to take home so you can remember your special day.
