Some of those game viewing things in SA are better prisons. Not so here. The animals had pretty huge possibilities to move and looked fresh. Woth a stop

If you like giraffes this is a place to visit,they have two giraffes the first one you come to is a bit disappointing as couldn't get close enough to get a good photo. But further round we met Gerry who was delightful putting his head right over for a stoke & trying to grad the bucket of food.There are quite... More

A great day out for the kids, in a not-so-zoo Zoo. The staff was highly educational and friendly, it was very affordable and holding a large yellow python or hairy tarantula was the highlight of my 7 year old's day. Hats of to Pieter Oosthuizen for the informative trip!

This was a SUPER experience! We were welcomed with a friendly smile and a bit of info about the place. It is very well kept and they have such well looked after and cute animals, which my little one just loved to feed and look at. Would recommend Giraffe house to anyone who would love a day out with the... More

Took the kids to see the zoo. Great staff. Very friendly and welcoming. Kids get a bucket to feed animals which they loved. The show was amazing! Guy presenting is excellent and really engaging. The zoo could have better signage though. Didn't know what some of the animals on the outer sides were as they had no signs. Also the... More

We went to this place last Saturday with my daughter. There are ostriches giraffes goats birds ducks and few other animals. It was good for a quick visit. We paid 130 rants for two adults and a child. There are a lot of families doing picnics. You can feed the animals as well. Overall not bad but not very exciting... More

I have lost count of the times I have visited this facility and I know I will be visiting there on may more occasions. With each visit I am always surprised with "something new". The time and effort placed into the upkeep and development of this facility can be seen without question. They do the most amazing animal/reptile shows and... More

We came here with my nephew and had a great time! At first we were surprised that it was cash only so we almost didn't make it in! Staff was very kind and accommodating. When you go in they give each person a small bucket of feed. We headed toward the goats and fed them. They swarm and some of... More

My wife love giraffes, so as a surprise I took her here during our anniversary week. Both of us enjoyed it immensely, and I think this is also a great place to bring children. I was genuinely surprised at the variety of animals: obviously, a giraffe, but also caracal, foxes, snakes, eland, zebra, ostriches, tortoises, lemurs and more, as well... More

Entrance fee is minal to what you expirance. They provide you with feed to feed the animals for no cost. A bit disapointed that we only got to see two giraffes but all the other animals made up for it. Take the whole faimly young and old and go watch the show and tell show.
