These are the Reticulated Giraffes that you would pay over 500.00 to have breakfast with a Giraffe Manor. I paid 13 and was able to pet, feed, and even kiss these giraffes. Lots of fun facts to learn also. Awesome!

If you love giraffe's you must visit the Giraffe Center. You can get up close and personal with them, feed them and even be kissed by one, as I was. Learn about these amazing animals, take wonderful pictures and have a unique experience.

The giraffes were awesome. We got to feed them. It was such an experience seeing them that close. Kids had a great time and could not believe their eyes. Wish there was more to do after feeding the giraffes.

They accept local currency. If they do accept USD it may not be at market price and you may end up spending more. Safer to use local currency
