My son's favourite animal is the giraffe so we thought we would visit while in Cape Town on our holiday. It really is misleading to call it the Giraffe House. There was only one giraffe, although I believe another will be introduced soon. Also, the enclosure for the giraffe really does not look suitable for her. Very little vegetation there. No guide to talk to us about Gerry, but there was a poster with some details. We enjoyed seeing the other animals and my son participated in the snake / reptile encounter. Perhaps they would be better keeping to the small animals and not have a giraffe or eland in small (for them) enclosures. Gerry's head got stuck in the fencing and my son got quite distressed. It took over a minute for the giraffe to maneouvre her head out. Also agree that there is very little shade for summer time. Would have given a higher review without the giraffe. She seemed very lonely and just paced back and forwards along the fence.
