Renovations at the Giraffe Landing Feeding Experience are complete! Now, visitors and giraffes can benefit from the brand new shade structure that has been added to the feeding area. The addition, courtesy of Zoofari Fund-a-Need donors enhances the visitor experience.
Feeding a giraffe is an Instagrammable moment. Make plans to get up close and personal with the Gladys Porter Zoo’s reticulated giraffe family. Visitors will be able to feed giraffe treats to the herd at the wall of the exhibit. In order to provide a safe and meaningful animal feeding encounter, guests are able to stand on a specially built, ADA-accessible platform under the supervision of Zoo staff. Photo opportunities will be available at the feeding site. Giraffe Landing is located at the giraffe exhibit in the Africa section of the Zoo.
Giraffe treats will be available for purchase for three dollars. Giraffe Landing will be open on weekends and during special engagements from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m., weather permitting.
