What a great place and amazing experience to have right in Florida! My husband and I visited the Giraffe Ranch and had the best time. I love giraffes, which is what brought us there to start with. They have so much more. The couple that run the ranch were extremely informative. They have been to Africa over 30 times and... More

My daughter really loves Giraffes so this trip was an easy choice and we all enjoyed every minute although feeding both the Giraffes and the Rhinos were the highlights. We really enjoyed seeing and learning more about the many animals on the ranch in a small group and up close.

We had an amazing time at the giraffe ranch! Not only was the safari amazing, but the whole experience was. I never thought it was going include so much more! Being a family owned and operated business, they were so knowledgeable and you could see how passionate they were about their ranch. We opted for all the add ons for... More

We took our two granddaughters to GIRAFFE RANCH (ages 6, 7); we all loved it! We spent just over two hours there, beginning with an independent walk around the animals in cages (lemurs, monkeys, wallabees, otters and others). We paid to feed (grapes) the ring tailed lemurs which was quite an experience; the animals are very beautiful and gentle. There... More

Informative and nice owners. Multiple animals. Safari ride is a must!! Feeding giraffes was a great experience. I recommend for any age as long as someone is mobil. I learned so much today, and so did my 8 year old son.

I'm a Florida resident who's traveled all over the world and also done a lot of our cool local Florida eco-safari type animal ranch activities, but this was by far my favorite to date. It's about 1.5 hours from Orlando. For starters, they have a TON of animals from all over the world. The giraffes are just the tip of... More

I have taken everyone who visits to enjoy this place. The staff is so well informed about the animals and their care, and the animals response to them confirms the fact that they know they are loved. I cannot go as often as I would like because it is pricey, but I understand it is expensive to care properly for... More

I found this wonderful piece of animal heaven on a fluke and I definitely do not regret it! This hidden gem was one of the best experiences of my life! I did the lemur feeding and did the safari by camel. I didn't know what to expect from this entire experience at all. The lemur feeding was so much fun!... More

I was pleasantly surprised by our visit to Giraffe Ranch. We decided to feed the lemurs (awesome and worth the extra $20) as well as do the tour. I was happy with the amount of information that was shared about the different animals and found it informative and interesting. The feeding of the giraffes were obviously a highlight however I...
