Giraffe Feeding
Giraffe Feeding
New feeding times have just been added! Sign up online for dates through September 30. Beginning October 1, as feedings will be weather dependent, sales will be at the zoo ticket boxes only.

Get up close and personal with some of nature's tallest herbivores! This fun encounter takes place eight times a week - 11am and 2pm on Sundays, and 2pm Monday through Saturday. You will meet with a giraffe keeper who will escort you behind the scenes to the feeding gate and let you feed a giraffe! Each encounter will last approximately 15 minutes, and is limited to just ten people each time.

Each person attending must have a ticket. Children under the age of 12 must be accompanied by a ticket-holding adult.

For special accomodations, please e-mail

Meet the keeper at Post 12, at the bottom of Wildlife Way, 10 minutes before your scheduled time printed on your ticket. Late arrivals will not be accomodated.

The feeding gate is wheelchair accessible, but please be aware the path is uneven.

Choose from one of two delivery options - "Print on web" gives you instant, mobile-friendly tickets you can use on your phone or tablet right away.

"Print at home" gives you tickets you can print out on paper using your home printer. You will need to have a PDF reader on your computer or tablet. Please allow up to one hour for Print at Home tickets to arrive in your email in-box. Then just open the attachment and print off your tickets.
