MillerCoors Giraffe Experience

MillerCoors Giraffe Experience

The Zoo’s MillerCoors Giraffe Experience features an outdoor enclosure for the African giraffes; a deck that lets zoogoers get face to face with and feed the giraffes; a temperature-controlled indoor public viewing area; and animal-care areas.

Want to Feed the Giraffes?

Join us for an unforgettable experience. You and others in your small group will be with a knowledgeable guide for about ½ hour. The guide will bring the giraffe to you, talk about the giraffe, answer your questions, and allow you to feed the animals. For more details, see below.
