Giraffes are the world's tallest mammals, thanks to their towering legs and long necks. They are graceful, well-groomed individuals moving through life with the confidence and elegance that only big game animals exhibit. Giraffes’ favorite food is the acacia, a genus of trees and shrubs that are common in their environment, but they also consume herbs, fruits, seeds and leaves of more than 100 types of plants. Giraffes are avid eaters when food is plentiful, so they can eat up to 34 kg of vegetation every day.

Did you know that the patterns on each giraffe are unique, so no two are ever alike and their tongues are 18 inches long and have a unique black or dark gray color? Get close and feed these lovely animals at Safari Wild Animal Park and find out more amazing facts about them from our experienced staff!


Petting Zoo Barn

Petting Zoo Barn

Included with admission

A petting zoo offers a combination of domesticated animals and some wild species that are docile enough to touch and feed. Animals in such zoos are typically gentle, domesticated baby animals like lambs, puppies, kittens, ducklings, and bunnies. These kind of zoos are perfect for children, as they can get up close to animals and pet them. The petting zoo barn at Safari Wild Animal Park is well supervised to prevent injury to either children or the animals and our staff will help you in whichever way you need.
