Giraffe Heights

You are here

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.

Blackpool Zoo is Open!

As part of Step 2 of the national roadmap out of lockdown we are allowed to open once again.  

However, we will not be allowed to open most indoor areas: the indoor eating area of the cafe is closed, as are the indoor viewing area of animal houses including elephants, big cats, giraffes, small primates, gorillas and orangutans. These animals all have access to their outdoor enclosures, however they may take themselves inside during inclement weather.  Lemur Wood and Rainbow Landings remain closed.

A full list of restrictions and measures in place can be found here.  Please ensure you read them before you book your tickets as they are non-refundable and non-exchangeable.

We really look forward to welcoming you back to Blackpool Zoo.
