The Experience

You will never forget the look and feel of a giraffe’s 18-inch, rough black tongue as it devours your tempting treat. Last year, more than 30,000 guests enjoyed one-on-one giraffe feeding time. Be on the lookout for our two giraffe babies born in 2017, Kipenzi and Binti.

The deck’s operating hours are 10:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., and are weather dependent.

All guests must remain behind the permanent and temporary barriers on the deck.

Guests should not touch the giraffes, as they can quickly swing their heads around when uncomfortable!

Wheelchairs, electric scooters, and any other accessibility devices are all welcome on the deck!

Please consume all open food or beverages before entering the deck area, or leave them outside.
