Your giraffe experience
You’ll be welcomed by one of our giraffe keepers and after a short briefing you’ll enter the giraffe enclosure. 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.
You’ll be feeding our giraffes tree branches and a pellet that has everything they need to keep them fit and healthy. They’ll eat the pellets from your palm, wrapping their long tongues around your hand. So get ready for a bit of giraffe slobber!
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 cuddly toy giraffe to take home so you can remember your special day.
