The giraffes were awesome. We got to feed them. It was such an experience seeing them that close. Kids had a great time and could not believe their eyes. Wish there was more to do after feeding the giraffes.

We stayed at Giraffe Manor and walked across the field to the feed platform where you can feed the Giraffes. You are actually face to face with the Giraffe and you can feed them with the pellets that are provided. A guide who saw us...More
