Unfortunately, we have had to close indoor animal viewing areas and walk-through exhibits. All of these animals do have outdoor enclosures where you’ll have the chance to see them, and we’ll be adapting routines to encourage them outside as much as possible.
Giraffe Heights was opened in 2008 and now provides a light and airy home to our four female giraffes. You can stand at ground-level and be amazed at just how tall these amazing creatures are, or at their head height on the raised walkway as they spend time outside.
The ramp to the raised walkway offers excellent access for those with disabilities and there’s a covered seating area with a great view across the park and of the stunning, chestnut antelope, a blesbok, in the adjoining paddock.
A feeding platform on the higher level is used to allow you to feed the giraffes with a member of staff – an experience not to be missed! (additional charges apply). What a privilege to be able to feed browse to these magnificent creatures and be so close as to look directly into their eyes and feel their breath on your hands.
