Touristy but worth it! Informative short talk about giraffes and the Center. Fun & easy to feed giraffes. Even more fun to get a kiss! The giraffes are extremely gentle! It’s neat to feel that blue tongue & their soft lips!!

We started our African experience at the Giraffe Centre. What fun. We were able to experience firsthand the Rothschild giraffes and learn about them from an experienced guide.

You get to go up close to the Giraffes and you can feed them by hand. It is a fun experience, but it feels a little bit like a zoo.
