Giraffe Feeding

The giraffe feeding is a highlight of any zoo trip!

A wheelchair accessible ramp leads to the covered platform, bringing you to eye level with the giraffes! Guests can feed the giraffe out of their hands with special grain available at the feeding station vending machines.  Don't forget your quarters!
