“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.” – Amie Lewis, Pembrokeshire, 22 September 2020, 5 stars

“This a great opportunity to get up close to these beautiful giants. The keeper was very knowledgeable and I enjoyed feeding the giraffes.

“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 knowledgeable 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. Thank you to the keeper for making it exciting and a joyful experience!” – Nik Gamble, Cardiff, 18 November 2018, 5 stars
