If you want to really appreciate how a giraffe experiences the world, you have to get up high. Really high!
Head behind-the-scenes and climb the Savannah Outlook tower to get face-to-face with the Zoo’s tallest residents, the giraffe.
See the Zoo from a whole new angle, learn a bit about these long-limbed creatures as they wander over to say hello and – if they’re in the mood for a snack – you might even have the opportunity to feed them one of their favourite, leafy treats.
Enclosed footwear is recommended for this encounter.
Please note, all patrons undertaking this encounter, including accompanying adults, need to hold a valid encounter ticket. Failure to do so may result in the forfeiting of the experience.
For safety, children and infants under 2 years will not be permitted on the tower.
Not wheelchair accessible.
