Giraffes

Giraffes

Come meet our newest additions to the park – our two Reticulated Giraffes, Spike and Bakari. Take the trail through the newest section of the park to arrive at their new exhibit located adjacent to the safari tour. You’ll find them roaming in their pasture, where they have over three acres of land to explore and play, or interacting with park visitors. Giraffes are the tallest land animal on earth and getting to see these gravity-defying creatures up close is a unique experience that is not to be forgotten.

Close Encounter

Starting in the 2019 season, Spike and Bakari are also going to have their own elevated feeding platform. As a visitor you will be able to purchase special food for the giraffes and get up close and personal as they take the food right out of your hands.

Please note that the giraffes’ diet is very strict, even more so than other animals at the park. Food selection may vary by day and there may be periods of time when they are not taking snacks from visitors.
