Cold weather Giraffe Encounter

During the colder months (October to April, but often all year around), this VIP Experience will take you on an exciting visit behind-the-scenes, into the giraffe house.

You will be taken by your experienced tour guide to a specially designed viewing platform where you will meet the giraffe at eye level and be able to feed the giraffe a little treat.

Warm Weather Giraffe Encounter

As the weather warms up (generally from around April to October) the giraffe herd will be out roaming in their nine-acre parkland reserves. There may still be an opportunity to visit them in their house, but the herd have the freedom to choose where they want to spend time, so may choose to be outside. 

During these months, this VIP experience will include a trip in a VIP Land Rover to enjoy a tour of Giraffe Junction alongside these majestic creatures. You will also have the opportunity to feed the herd their favourite leaves

On exceptionally wet days, this reverts to the below cold weather option.
