“Get close to the giraffes”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Wonderful to get so close to these beautifully graceful animals. Feed them but watch out for a headbutt if you stop....stand back and let someone else take over

“Be sure to Kiss a Giraffe!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2013

Really, you can kiss a giraffe. If you put the food in your lips, they will take it from you and you get a tickly kiss. Yes, there is a little giraffe spit, but what a rare thing to tell your friends. It is a little overpriced, but we liked the lecture in the main hall.

“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Loved every minute of feeding a giraffe and getting close up and personal. Even if you see giraffes in the wild, the experience of actually touching one and feeding one doesn't come close.

“A waste of time and money”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2013

You are given a few minutes to feed any giraffes that happen by. This is not their main food but a kind of pellet snack. The giraffes are cute but slobbery. Most people in our family balked at feeding them. After this there is a kind of "show" with a ranger type holding up placards with info about giraffes. It was kind of boring. That's it. We were disappointed. And we love giraffes!
