This African Hoofed Animal Preserve is the best. Very informative about the plight of these animals and to top off the day, kissing a Giraffe was spectacular.

Short tour in Range Rover (1 hour). I have been on a Safari in Santa Rosa and was a bit disappointed that there were fences separating our view. The highlight is the giraffe feeding at the end & was well worth the tour/money/drive!
