Giraffe/Kangaroo Encounter

Wilstem is happy to announce the start of the Spring season with our Giraffes!  By signing up for the Giraffe Encounter, guests will get to enjoy visiting with Bert and Jabari, attend a feeding session, and have the opportunity to take amazing photos!  This once-in-a-lifetime experience occurs in our newly constructed Giraffe facility, so encounters will be held rain or shine!  Also, we have constructed a new barn that you will get to visit free of charge–the “Roos and Crew” facility!  By booking the Giraffe/Kangaroo Encounter, you will get to visit the Kangaroos, Miniature Goats, Snakes, an Iguana, and other small animals!  The “Roos and Crew” barn is a walk-through facility, meaning you can visit anytime during our operating hours (9:00 am – 5:00 pm EDT).  It’s a great way to spend a day with us here at Wilstem!  Here are the details on the Giraffe/Kangaroo Encounter:
