We went there for the first day on a sunny afternoon. The feeding of sweet potatoes to the 5 giraffes was definitely the highlight. If you let them they will even kiss you! Cannot recommend it enough!

Who knew they existed? Fantastic hour, very well worth the money for a very worthy cause. I even bought an “I kissed a giraffe” t-shirt.

What a neat experience for our family. We learned so mush about the animals and the ongoing effort to save them. Great organization ran by great people. A must see!

I dont know -- suggest calling and asking the preserve. A concern would be if your dog barks or runs about.
