Well done Folly Farm."
"Turned up to Folly Farm thinking it was going to be a small affair, as the view from the road lends itself to that assumption. Boy was I wrong. This place seems to stretch on forever. Had a fantastic time in with the giraffes, was eagerly greeted by two members of staff at the enclosure whom answered all my questions and even came away with a head full of giraffe slobber. Absolutely enjoyed it."
"Absolutely amazing experience, the zoo keeper was very kind and she explained loads of facts about giraffes. She also helped my step daughter when she was nervous. Very amazing experience, will definitely do it again."
"Highly recommend the giraffe experience as a gift for any age. Bought for me during lockdown and Folly Farm have honoured the gift. As it's winter the giraffes were indoors but that didn't affect our experience. Our keeper Meg was extremely engaging and knowledgeable and we chatted about the animals and farm as we fed the giraffes. We loved our cuddly toys to take home."
"My wife and autistic son did the experience. Son was very nervous, but the keeper was fantastic with him. Both really enjoyed the experience."
"A brilliant day out with my daughter and the experience day was for her. She loved feeding the giraffes. All staff are great and a huge thank you to our keeper, a true gent."
"Had this gifted to me in 2019 and due to covid had to be postponed. My first praise is with the team in extending the date of my voucher and providing me with a date three years after the purchase - incredible! Next praise is for the experience itself.

Our keepers Dylan and Rachel were amazing providing us with all the relevant information to totally enjoy our experience, answering our questions and taking photos of us with the giraffes Rudy, Rian and Taharqa."
"Big thank you to Rachel for an amazing giraffe experience. My daughter and I love feeding the giraffes. We have done it every year for my daughter's birthday since she turned 8. I think it's become a birthday tradition! It was so nice to meet Rudi up close and to learn about the giraffes again."
"Amazing experience! I got the experience as a gift just before covid hit and it unfortunately was put off for a long time as a result. However when I finally went, zookeeper Rachel was fantastic. She was excited and encouraging, told us lots of information, answered any questions we had and offered to take pictures for us. The certificate and toy at the end was a lovely personal touch too!"
"My son was gifted this experience for Christmas. He was super excited and it really did not disappoint. The keeper was fantastic. Caring, knowledgeable and patient. The weather was fantastic, which I’m sure only helped but the whole day from start to finish was spot on. Thanks everyone! Rudy the soft toy giraffe now also has a very loving home."
"I got my daughter this experience for her 8th birthday and wow! What an amazing day she had. From start to finish the giraffe feeding experience was perfect! Zoo keeper Meg was amazing. So friendy, full of smiles and was more than happy to answer all our questions. My daughter has now decided she wants to be like zoo keeper Meg! Thank you for a great experience and we will definitely be back!"
"Totally amazing, the staff member Meg was lovely and really added to the whole experience. She was really friendly and very informative to all my questions. To have the opportunity to interact and feed these gentle giants and learn about their personalities is something I will cherish. Thank you Meg and Folly Farm for all you wonderful work, I for one will be back."

We didn’t feel at all rushed and felt we had plenty of time to enjoy the experience and interact with the giraffes. Thank you so much!"
"The giraffe experience was fantastic. I was given a bucket with different leaves and pellets to feed them. Three of the giraffes came over. You can really appreciate their size when you are stood so close to them. They are so gentle taking the food from you. Pippa was great at telling us all about them and answering any questions. I'd love to do it again and will be looking at the others available."
"I had the best day. I have always wanted to be drooled on by a giraffe and that is what I got. The best experience to be able to touch and feed an amazing animal. I would recommend to anyone who wants to get close to their favourite animal. A day I won't forget. The staff member I had was very nice and friendly too."
"The giraffe feeding experience was a surprise present for my husband who is mad about giraffes. He and I loved it, the most magical experience. The feeding took place in the barn, and it felt like a privilege to get so close. Pippa was very good at answering our questions and was kind enough to take lots of photos. We loved our giraffe gifts, they now have pride of place in our camper van."
"Dream come true! It has always been a dream of mine to feed giraffes and have that closeness with my favourite animal. Amazing from start to finish. I had a lovely zoo keeper who was so informative and friendly. She made me feel at ease and made the experience run smoothly. The amount of time is short but it is one I’ll never forget. Perfect. I had the best time!"

"What a wonderful experience! It was inside which was good due to weather but it was fantastic to be so close to such gorgeous animals, highly recommend. Me and my 11 year old daughter did it and loved it. The keeper was very friendly and really knowledgable. Thank you!"
"Christmas present off my husband. Wow what an experience, really enjoyed it. Best experience ever, thoroughly enjoyed myself. Would love to do it all over again. Thank you to the keeper, she was very informative."
"Thoroughly enjoyed my feeding experience. It lasted around 15 minutes and got to talk to the keeper and explain how jealous I was of their job and talked lots about the animals and their personalities. Just a thoroughly enjoyable experience! The keeper was fantastic and explained everything thoroughly and what to do and it was just fantastic! Would definitely recommend to others!"
"My daughter did the giraffe feeding and she loved every minute of it. A very friendly staff member talked her through everything. Would highly recommend to anyone."
"We really enjoyed our giraffe experience. Pippa our keeper was really lovely and you can tell she loves what she does. I asked lots of questions and she was able to answer them all with ease. Seeing a giraffe up close is a pretty amazing thing and you get the true size of them when you're up and close with them. A really wholesome activity to do with these gentle giants. I highly recommend!"
"Wow! My daughter absolutely loved feeding the giraffe and learning a few things about them. It was over pretty quick but she wants to do it again already! It really did make her 10th birthday special. Thank you. I would highly recommend to anyone who loves animals. My daughter had always wanted to be a zoo keeper but has changed her mind as she's got older. Doing this experience has changed her mind again."
"We arranged it for our daughter's 11th birthday and she had a wonderful time. The zoo keeper was fantastic and spent time answering questions, she was very knowledgeable. The giraffes are magnificent."
"This experience was bought as a Christmas gift for my disabled mother who loved it! Jack, the zookeeper, was incredibly patient and very helpful throughout, ensuring Mum was ok and didn’t need to sit down. 10/10. The best Christmas gift she has received. Would definitely recommend. Fantastic value for money."
"It was absolutely amazing. I bought the giraffe experience for me and my daughter for her birthday as well as the giraffe adoption but we had to wait until now to do it due to lockdown. She was absolutely over the moon to see her name on the giraffe adoption board. Then we got to feed and smooth the giraffes which was just incredible. You could feel their tongue as they took pellets from your hand."
"Pippa was amazing and so knowledgeable. No question was too silly. I had the best time and will definitely be booking to feed them again."
"Brought my daughter for her birthday and what amazing experience. Something we'll never forget! Not every day you can say you fed a giraffe...well unless you look after them! Staff were lovely and full of information, even the new guy who was training to do the experience. Can't thank you all enough."

It was amazing to get up so close to the giraffes and they were very gentle when taking the food. Would highly recommend this activity."
"Was bought this giraffe experience by my son as a gift. I am a massive fan of giraffes and always have been. I had the most amazing experience feeding them, and being so close to them! I was by myself, so had them all to myself, another bonus. They are soft and gentle, and amazing animals! The keeper was lovely and very informative, and knowledgeable. Had a fab day. I will be back next year."
"Had a lovely day out at Folly Farm, with family and friends, but the highlight had to be meeting and feeding the giraffes. I'm unsure if it was good value for money as it was a gift but all I can say is I thoroughly enjoyed it as love giraffes. The zoo keepers, including Jack, were excellent, providing interesting info and answering all types of questions."
"Feeding giraffes is on my bucket list and this is the second time I have done it at Folly Farm. It’s a brilliant experience with the friendly knowledgeable keepers telling us lots about giraffes generally and in particular the group at Folly Farm. I made some great memories and have some great photos to look back on. I will most definitely be back to do it again."
"I was brought a giraffe feeding experience as a present, upon arrival at Folly Farm we were greeted in a friendly manner and walked down to the giraffe house. After a few moments the keeper arrived with a big bucket of leaves and food. The whole experience was very relaxed and friendly, it was great to feed such beautiful animals and be told information about them. I would highly recommend this!"
"Amazing experience. Better than I could ever have imagined! Been wanting to do this for years and was surprised with it that morning. Keeper was very knowledgeable and made the experience very personal and unforgettable. Would definitely recommend."
"Had a wonderfull day at your farm and zoo. The giraffe feeding was a birthday present (65th) and my grandson's lion feeding experience for his 18th birthday present. The keepers are so informative and friendly. The sun was shining and showed everything in all its glory. I highly recommend the feeding experience and the visit - a wonderfull day out."
"This was a gift from my children and we then bought another for my daughter for the same day! It was a wonderful experience to get up close and personal, the giraffes are so graceful and gentle, and gladly, very hungry. The gift was fun, a soft toy, fab for the younger ones! Your keeper, Pippa, was very friendly, a credit to Folly Farm."
"We brought the giraffe experience for my daughter who absolutely loves giraffes. She is 8 years old and absolutely loved the experience. The giraffe keepers were especially good,very knowledgeable and made the experience fun. We will definitely book again. The whole zoo was a great place to visit."
"Fantastic experience, something I’ll never forget. Very well organised. Staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Family were able to get close whilst I was feeding so that they could take photos. Such a great day out overall. Would highly recommend."
"Amazing, excellent day. Got really close to giraffes, wasn't rushed along at all. Staff were helpful, patient and informative. Spent a lot of time afterwards talking to them. Would recommend this experience, loved it."
"This experience was booked for my daughters 11th birthday. When booking the experience staff were very helpful even when I changed the date. On the day it was raining heavily but the giraffes didn’t mind! An amazing experience for my daughter who later told me it was her dream to do this. Well worth it!"
"Absolutely amazing experience getting up close to the giraffes. Very friendly and helpful staff who provide lots of information about the giraffes you are feeding."
"Took the wife for the giraffe experience. She totally loved it. The lady who did the experience from Folly farm was very professional and knowledgeable. Highly recommend Folly Farm. Remember animal experiences are not just for kids! The wife wants to do it again."
"We came to Folly Farm for my giraffe experience. I've been wanting to do it for years and it finally happened. It was amazing! And have so many photos to keep from it. Thankyou so much to the keeper, she was lovley! 4 days later we were back at Folly Farm to show some of our family around. See you next year and thankyou once again."
"I booked the giraffe experience as a present for my mother, who has always loved giraffes and I wasn't disappointed. The giraffe keeper was very knowledgeable about her animals and was not only happy to answer all of our questions but she also seemed to take genuine pleasure in doing so, showing a keen interest throughout. A great experience and one which I hope to do again. Highly recommended."
"I had such an amazing time at the giraffe feeding experience. The keeper was so friendly and chatty. Answering any questions that my nephews had. I've always loved giraffes and it was so nice to get up close to them. The little teddy at the end was an extra bonus!"
"My daughter Dylan did the giraffe experience and thought it was the most fun thing she's ever done. We all thoroughly enjoyed it as well as we got to learn more about giraffes and their feeding habits. The man who led the experience was so informative and nice, telling us all kinds of cool facts about giraffes. I would totally recommend this for anyone who wants to get up close with animals."
"This was bought for my 30th as it's been my dream to get so close and to feed these beautiful animals. From booking the date to arriving the staff was amazing. The two zoo keepers answered all my questions and went above and beyond to make my dream come true. So thank you so much."
"Amazing. Friendly, informative staff. Definitely worth doing, giving life long memories. The giraffes were so gentle, fantastic being so close to them. It's obvious they are so well looked after. Even came home with my very own giraffe."
"My family adopted a giraffe and paid for the experience for my birthday last year so we coincided it with Father’s Day and eight of us went along. My children and grandchildren really enjoyed it and I was ecstatic as the photos that they took showed. We had a full day there as we started when it opened and stayed until it closed. As I said to my family I wish I could rewind and do it all over again."
"Excellent event that my elderly mother was absolutely thrilled with. The keepers were lovely, friendly and enabling. Lovely day."
"This was a birthday present for my dad and my 8 year old son. My son absolutely loved the experience, he is really passionate about animals and this just totally made his birthday and year. He loved Rachel and how informative she was. My dad thought the experience was incredible too! He was in awe of being so close to such incredible animals. I loved that we could see the and watch the joy on their faces. Phenomenal!"
"Feeding the giraffes was such an amazing experience that I will never forget. Gentle giants. Jack the keeper was so knowledgeable and interesting. My boyfriend gave me the experience as a gift and I feel very fortunate to have done this. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Jack and the giraffes."
"We booked this amazing experience for our 8 year old and he loved every second. It was so amazing being so close to them. We learnt lots of interesting fact from the keeper and it felt so special for my son. He wants to do it again on our next visit."
"Totally Fabulous experience. The keeper that day was a very pleasant young man called Jack. His knowledge and love of these magnificent creatures was astounding he obviously loves his job and made the experience wonderful."
"We had an excellent time feeding the giraffes. The keepers were extremely knowledgeable and friendly and took time to help my daughter (who was a little weary) with the experience. They answered all her questions and made us all feel a part of the experience. Thank you very much!"
"I received the giraffe experience as a special birthday present for my 60th birthday from work colleagues. I love giraffes and was so excited on the day. They were amazing, gentle creatures. The two zoo keepers were very informative and answered all the questions I had. I would definitely recommend this experience to anyone. Such a memorable day."
"I loved how the giraffes curled their tongues around my hand while feeding them the pellets. I also simply adore Jeremy (the name of my giraffe soft toy, the free gift they gave me at the end). The staff were very friendly and knowledgeable and answered all my questions. Booking was efficient and the experience helped to bring home the importance of conserving these beautiful animals."
"Fantastic. I would like to have been a little bit closer but it was still superb."
"This was an amazing experience! The keepers were fantastic, polite, kind and full of knowledge about the giraffes. A huge thank you!"
"We had a really great time. The zoo keeper was very nice and informative."

Pippa made it truly memorable for all of us, happily answering all of our daughter's many questions and making Daisy feel relaxed and happy to take part in all aspects of the experience, even the giraffe slobber! We can't thank you all enough."
"Most enjoyable. We were met by the keeper who explained about the giraffes and how to feed them. She gave each of us a bucket and stayed with us as we fed the giraffes. She answered all our queries and questions and was very knowledgable and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the experience."
"An absolutely amazing experience. You really don’t realise just how big giraffes are until they're bending their necks to take food out of your hand. Would highly recommend this to any giraffe lover. The keeper was brilliant too."
"It was an amazing experience. Pippa the giraffe keeper was great. Pippa explained all about the giraffes and how they are kept at Folly Farm. She was patient, kind and very knowledgeable . Would 100% recommend the experience."
"Although the giraffes already come close to the Giraffe Heights platform, it was a different experience feeding them. It made you fully appreciate their size and the keeper was very helpful answering all the questions. It was lovely that family could get close enough to get photos of the experience but the keeper also took lots from floor level. Lovely also that friends at home could watch over the live web cam too. I wish I had got a little longer with the giraffes as it's my favourite part of the zoo. I would definitely have a go at another exerience. The gift was a lovely touch at the end."
"Four of us took part in the experience - myself, my son and my niece and nephew. Ages 50 down to 8! Loved it, the keeper was very friendly and knowledgable about giraffes and what gentle giants they are! Would definitely recommend it. My only negative is that after paying for the experience we also had to pay entry to Folly Farm and yes we did spend time in the rest of the farm but I feel if you are paying for an experience then entry should be free or a small amount. Or add a small amount onto the experience to cover entry. 8 of us went in total so I feel only four should have paid entry. But otherwise Folly Farm in the winter months is great, nice and quiet and a really relaxing day! Thank you to the keeper for making it exciting and a joyful experience!"
"Absolutely amazing experience. Pippa, the giraffe keeper, was brilliant. Thanks."
"Amazing experience! My daughter loves feeding the giraffe. The keeper was fantastic and happy to answer all questions!"
"Had such an amazing experience feeding the giraffes. The giraffe keeper was super friendly and very knowledgeable. Thank you for a fantastic day."

"Birthday present from my little boy with my favourite animal. Amazing experience with amazing animals. The keepers were lovely. There was no feeling of having to rush it. Brilliant from start to finish."
"I received the giraffe experience as a birthday present from my husband and as I've always loved giraffes, I was beyond excited to take part. I was not left disappointed with my visit. Just being around and up close to these amazing, gentle animals was fantastic. The keepers who took the experience were fantastic and covered a lot of facts about the giraffes as well as their daily routines. They were happy to answer any questions you had and I loved that they didn't make you feel rushed to get the experience over with. They made me feel very welcome and felt like I could take my time to enjoy. They were happy for my partner and stepson to watch from the side and for me to have some pictures taken while I fed the giraffes. Overall I had a fantastic time during my experience, I have some lovely photos to go away with my memories and to top it off was even given a soft toy giraffe when I left which I loved as an extra touch! I would definitely recommend one of these experiences to make a fab time at Folly Farm that extra special."
"My son had a wonderful experience feeding the giraffes. He couldn't believe how gentle they were! Amazing to watch these beautiful animals feeding. The zoo keepers are lovely and was a pleasure having them both make Oliver feel calm and relaxed, he was a bit nervous initially. But loved every moment of it!"
"Brilliant experience thank you. I have now done the penguins, rhinos and giraffes...lions next."
"A fantastic experience. The keeper made us feel very welcome and explained about the animals and answered any questions. I was not sure what to expect but loved every minute of it. The experience was a gift and it was certainly a day out I will always remember. I would recommend a feeding experience as a special gift especially at Folly Farm."
"We bought the giraffe feeding experience for my daughter as a birthday surprise while we were visiting the area on holiday. She had an amazing time! The giraffe keeper was so friendly and knowledgeable and also told her all about the giraffes and their different personalities! She was made up to be given her own individual bucket of food to feed them and thoroughly enjoyed getting so close to such beautiful animals. 10 out of 10, would recommend to anyone!"
"Had a great time feeding the giraffes. It's amazing to get so close to these lovely animals. Giraffes are one of my favourite animals too. Lovely friendly staff. Would definitely recommend it to people. I already want to do it again."
"Keeper Pippa was fantastic. I explained that my son (and I) had anxiety just before the feeding session as well as on a list to be tested for autism and Keeper Pippa was really calm and helpful. She provided lots of information and answered all of our questions. Would definitely recommend her and the experience. The experience overall was an absolute joy."
"Best birthday present ever! What a memory for my 18th...a gooey giraffe tongue wrapped around my hands slobbering! Able to take loads of pictures and my family were so close they felt like they had the experience too."
"It was an amazing experience! Staff were friendly and had good knowledge. Only thing...more food in the bucket."
"This was my daughter's birthday treat. Both my daughter and niece had a fantastic time and loved every moment. The keeper was lovely and friendly and made the girls feel quite at ease.

She was mesmerised by the giraffes and loved hand feeding them, she had a massive smile on her face from start to finish. Would highly recommend the experience."
"I really enjoyed. The zoo keeper, Kim, was very informative. A great experience would recommend to others."
"Very friendly keepers who answered all our questions and were obviously just as enamoured with the giraffes as we were. Could have stayed there and fed them all day (probably not a good idea for the giraffes!). An unforgettable experience that any giraffe lover should do. Wonderful to be so close to them. The giraffes were very gentle and we were pleased Rian made the effort to stay with us!"
"Our daughter Alyssa had a great time feeding the giraffes at Folly Farm. The whole park is very well maintained and great value for money."
"Such a privilege to see these gentle creatures up close and learn more about them. Keeper was friendly and happy to answer questions. Brilliant experience."
"Fab experience, really informative and good fun. Would recommend to everyone."
"I would like to thank you for this wonderful experience of meeting and feeding these beautiful majestic animals. The keeper was very informative and knowledgeable and all staff well mannered and polite. I had an awesome day as part of my 70th birthday present. Thank you."
"I bought the giraffe experience for my mum for her birthday. She loves giraffes and we had seen other people feeding them on a previous visit, and I knew she would enjoy it. She had a great time getting up close to the giraffes and meeting their knowledgeable keepers. It was an day to remember and made treasured memories."
"I had two zoo keeper experiences for my 40th birthday,one with the giraffes and one with the penguins. It was great to get up close to the animals and I really enjoyed the experience. The staff are so friendly and informative and clearly love what they do! It is a great day out even if you don't have children! We are very lucky to have such a place on our doorstep, as being local we can go anytime we want! Would recommend as a gift for any age birthday, young or old!"
"Had a lovely day on our first visit. Impressed with the cleanliness, layout and such friendly staff. Brilliant experience feeding the giraffes and have recommended to our friends to do. Will be visiting again."
"My boyfriend bought me the experience for my birthday. He researched and found that this one was rated the best in the UK. It did not disappoint! I love giraffes and being that close to them and being able to feed them was amazing. It made my birthday unforgettable. Thank you Folly Farm!"
"Been visiting Folly Farm for about 10 years, giraffes have always been my favourite. My husband bought me the experience for my birthday and I was super excited to feed them. It was great to be up close with the giraffes and having them taking food from my hand. It was also good to have the keeper giving a talk at the same time. I got to ask questions and felt they were answered brilliantly. I would definitely do it again."
"I bought the giraffe experience as a birthday gift for my boyfriend. Pippa, the Keeper, was great. Full of interesting facts about the three male giraffes, she answered all of our questions! And as for the stars of the show, the 'boys', they did not disappoint and we really did get up close and personal...and a little covered in giraffe drool! But it all added to the overall experience, which we would both recommend!"
"Best time ever...love giraffes more than anything. Visited more zoos than I could name in here. And this was my first one to one with giraffes. The zoo keeper was brilliant any questions I had answered and explained, you could see how much she loved the animals and her job. Best money I've spent having that experience, then me and my boyfriend spent another two hours loving the zoo."
"I had the most amazing experience feeding the giraffes to get so close to them and touch them was amazing, they are my all time favourite. Pippa the keeper was so lovely. I'm still buzzing about my experience. Thank you so much Folly Farm."
"I had this as a birthday present. The keeper was very friendly and informative, and we got a tour around the giraffe’s enclosure. I would highly recommend this to others."
"My husband and I treated our daughter to the giraffe experience as she loves giraffes. She absolutely loved getting up close to them. We all enjoyed it. The keeper was really informative and answered all our questions. I thought it was excellent value for money to get up close to these majestic creatures."
"We booked both the penguin and giraffe experiences as a surprise for mum's 70th birthday. It was easy to book over the phone. First came the giraffes, and after visiting their indoor area we all watched as mum got up close and stroked these magnificent animals as she fed them. It was relaxed and unhurried."
"I loved it! Received as a birthday gift and it was amazing. Rach and Dylan were so informative and helpful. Giraffes are my favourite and to be that close feeding them was so good."

"We really enjoyed the giraffe experience. The location was great that we watch so close by. Excellent thank you."
"I took my son for his 10th birthday and it was incredible. The time the keeper gave to my son and the access to the incredible giraffes was amazing. It was also lovely that myself and my friend were able to be with him to see him experience it. Excellent."
"Mummy and daddy bought me this for a Christmas treat…it was fantastic! The giraffes are so massive but gentle, their big black tongues almost wrapped around my hands but I wasn't scared they were so lovely."
"Last Summer I went to Folly Farm to do the giraffe experience! Which was fantastic. The keeper's name was Rachael, she was so friendly, full of info and an obvious love for giraffes! They're such gentle giants."
"Amazing experience, very informative and enjoyable. Would do it all again."

"Rachel was very friendly and knowledgeable. She really made sure we enjoyed our experience. The giraffes are amazing, it was fantastic to be so close and feed them by hand. A truly incredible experience that I would recommend to any giraffe lover."
"Very interesting keepers, giving lots of information and answering all questions that were asked. Can tell they both love their work and animals."
"I received the giraffe experience as a birthday present from my husband. Just being around and up close to these amazing gentle animals was fantastic. The keepers who took the experience were fantastic. They were happy to answer any questions you had and I loved that they didn't make you feel rushed to get the experience over with. I would definitely recommend one of these experiences to make a fab time at Folly Farm even more special."

Four star reviews
"It was fun, my girls enjoyed it a lot. However, £75 for a annual pass holder is too expensive for a 20 minute feeding experience."
"Thoroughly enjoyed it. If any negative feedback I would say a tad expensive."
"Was an excellent experience for my daughter's 8th birthday. The negatives are: longer time with the giraffes and keeper (maybe taken around the enclosure obviously not inside) and the admission fee is included in the experience fee."
"Had a lovely giraffe experience at Folly Farm with my children. The keeper was very friendly and informative. We all learnt a lot!"
Three star reviews
"This a great opportunity to get up close to these beautiful giants. The keeper was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed feeding the giraffes. However, compared to other giraffe encounters I have been privileged to do, this was a very short experience and lacked some of the ‘extras’ other providers offer. It’s also a shame you have to pay admission on top of the experience. Overall, a good day though."
"Enjoyed very much but felt it was all quite rushed and expensive for the 10 minutes or so. Also did not have much food to feed the giraffes with as others in the group took most of it first! Individual buckets might be fairer."
Two star reviews
"For the price you pay you would expect the experience to last longer than 7 mins. We had to ask questions. Even where to wash our hands."
"£40 pp should include entry to the park."
