This was great fun - especially feeding the giraffes - and very illuminating. It suits any age and is a thoroughly worthwhile project.

Educational to find out how these magnificent giraffes came to be rescued and once protected. We learned about their breeding program and re-introducing these animals to the wild at a certain age.

Our group really enjoyed coming face to face with the giraffes who in turn really enjoyed being hand-fed. A lovely experience!

This is an amazing experience. The grounds are lovely and there are a lot of crafts to purchase. The giraffes are very friendly, especially if you feed them. Just don't tease them, because you might get a headbutt. You can also watch them run out on the grounds. The center is an inexpensive and easy taxi ride from downtown.
