Such beautiful animals and being so close to them is great. They are very used to humans so they are friendly and will eat from your hand and give you a kiss! You only need 30mins for this activity. Nice gift shop.

We visited the Giraffe Centre as a part of our Safari Tour. The center allows guests to feed the Thompson Giraffes that they are breeding. The presentation on the Giraffes and the mission of the center was very interesting and educational.
