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.

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.
