Giraffe Encounter

Meet the Zoo’s giraffes face to face!

This truly unique experience takes place once a day on Monday-Friday; and twice daily on weekends!  The Giraffe Encounter is $2 per person, with proceeds benefiting Zoo conservation efforts and staff professional development.  You can buy tickets or a multi-use pass at the admissions gate (cash, check, or credit card), or pay at the Giraffe Encounter platform (cash or check only).

School groups on a reserved field trip may participate for $1 per student.
