The Giraffe Park was a good sight and beautiful. The most enticing aspect was how the attendants cared for the animals.

Outstanding day visiting the giraffes. The site gets extremely busy right after the elephant visiting is finished, but if you wait an hour, everyone leaves and then you have the giraffes all to yourself. The guides know a lot about the giraffes and you can...More

This location gets you up close and personal with the giraffes - feed, touch and view. The guide gave us great information about this species of mammal. It was up close and amazing to do.

You can feed the giraffes with pellets supplied. Staff friendly helpful. A small display. Also warthogs. Obviously not in the wild so some don't like it, but a close up experience. Suggest elephant orphanage at 11.00-1200. Do giraffes 45-60 minutes before or after the elephants.
