“Giraffes up close”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 17, 2013

We visit Giraffe centre every so often to help our kids experience and enjoy wildlife. The love it! It's good for Sunday outings after lunch. You get to feed the giraffes which is mind blowing for the kids.

“Get up close to a giraffe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

This is a great place for children and adults. You get to feed a giraffe by hand and watch others who roam the grounds. If you have never had an opportunity to do this it is a treat. This gentle giants are amazing.

“Good Giraffe's but alot of money for little.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

I really enjoyed seeing the Giraffe's, one came close so I could feed her and touch her. There is a balcony which means you can be at the height of the animals which is fantastic. However even though we payed student price, I would say it was alot for a very short trip.

“One hour visit at most”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2013

The place is very small and one hour visit is enough. It does get you very close to giraffe though. You can feed the giraffe and touch its tongue. Some tourists really enjoyed kissing the giraffe by feeding with their tongues... We just could not do it. But if you can, it could be a lot of fun.

“Limited wildlife, but memorable and incomparable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

In no other place can one get eye-level with a giraffe, pet one, feed one, even get a kiss... ok, it's more like being licked by a wet Samsonite bag. Giraffes were rescued in the wild and undergo rehabilitation here.
