You will be given food for the giraffes, which eat non-stop. You can feed them with your hand or by holding the food with your lips, they will gently lick your mouth, a very funny experience!

Very small area, way too expensive for the excitement that is provided. $10 for an adult. After half an hour there is nothing more to see. Better do a Safari trip, there you can see the Giraffe also very closeby.
