An intimate encounter led by a specialised animal team
Climb up to the viewing platform to get on their level
Help prepare their food and feed the giraffes
Giraffes are wondrous creatures, with their long necks and beautiful coats, they carry a certain air of grace and mystery. This giraffe encounter is an incredible opportunity to get up close to their beauty and learn a little bit more about what makes these elegant animals tick. Upon arrival, meet the animal team who look after the giraffes, then climb up to the viewing platform to get on their level. Learn how the keepers look after the tallest animals in the world and help to prepare the browse bundles to feed the long-necked wonders. Includes admission to the safari park and, if you catch the wildlife bug, there is also 10 per cent off an annual safari park membership.
Available Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays from March to October, excluding bank holidays.
