Hand feed the giraffes in safety from a raised observation platform that allows for eye-to-eye interaction. Learn all about giraffe conservation and the various activities of the center.

    Regrettably, the Elephant center was closed due to Covid, it didn't seem to mind the other places. Was sorry we had to miss that. Otherwise, great tour, saw lots of animals at the National Park. Very cordial drivers/tour guides.
