Absolutely amazing! Very knowledgeable staff who were friendly and helpful. Rode in an open-air bus and saw so much more than giraffes. But feeding the giraffes was the highlight of the trip! Two hour drive just flew by!

We went with a group from our community and had a wonderful time. So worth the price to learn so much for the owners and to be so close to the animals. Will go again for sure and try another one of the tours
