Would it be wise to rent a car and drive ourselves to the Giraffe Center? What are the roads like from the city to the Giraffe Center?

Does the gift shop sell carved wooden giraffes/other animals? What about carved wood wall hangings?

Response from Giraffe C | Property representative |
Yes we do just as @BayW has said. We sell more than carving for animals. We have clothes, bags, caps, diaries, and so much more. All of them have a wildlife feel. They are of good quality too.
