Public feeding opportunities are available at the Giraffe Encounter: an elevated viewing platform overlooking the giraffe habitat, bringing guests to eye level with the Zoo’s tallest creatures. From late spring through early fall, 50 patrons per feeding can purchase a ticket from the Ambassador Booth at the main entrance of the Zoo, redeemable for a supervised opportunity to serve special giraffe food. Feeding opportunities are available subject to the giraffes’ appetites, the weather and special events, but is generally open from Tuesday through Sunday, June through September. Feeding times may vary and no other food or giraffe-feeding opportunities are permitted.
