Behind the Scenes with Giraffes
Discover what it’s like to stand right beside a giraffe. See how long their eyelashes are and find out for yourself what colour their tongues are! You’ll learn all about giraffes in an interactive interpretive talk, then journey behind the scenes and meet the giraffes up close. If you’re lucky, you may get the opportunity to feed them a treat.
Maximum group size is 30 people.
Ages Eight and older only. Children must be accompanied by a paying adult and may not attend alone.
Please wear appropriate footwear, no open-toed shoes.
