Nice place, well kept.
Friendly staff who assists with the food and was very helpfull showing the kids how to feed the giraffes.
Great Experience all around.
Oh, and they have a very nice giftshop too!

Erg leuke ervaring.
Vriendelijk personeel, wat hielp om de kinderen te laten zien hoe je de giraffen kon voeren.
Ook een leuke souveniershop & een café.

“Feed the Giraffes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This is another do not miss site...there are several kinds of giraffes here (warhogs, too) that you can feed, pat and observe. Rangers on the site are available to give a brief lecture on the centre, give more information about the animals and show you a leg bone.

“I kissed a giraffe!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This centre was an absolute delight! I had never been so close to these beautiful creatures. The guides were very informative and there was a short video about giraffes, as well as a small interpretive centre, showing pictures of the different species. We were given nuts to feed them and shown how to hold a nut in your mouth for the giraffe to take! They were very gentle. Our friends had small children who just adored the experience. Well worth a visit!

“Disappointing attraction”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 via mobile

First of all the entry fee is rediculously high for what you get. Second: If u really want to go, go when the park is open so u can feed them while they are hungry. Otherwise the care-takers have to lure them over (read:chase them around until they are close to the people). The park is always stacked with tourists pushing and shoving. Only positive thing was that I bought a decent nature book in the gift shop..
