Private Encounters

Along with the regular Giraffe/Kangaroo Encounter, we are also offering Private Encounters for those who want a more hands-on experience with these amazing animals!  Private Encounters can be booked for a group of up to 6 people, and will get to spend time feeding and getting pictures of the giraffes, and and being up close and personal with the kangaroos while learning about them!  Private Encounters will not have any of the general admission tickets in with them, so you and your group will get all the time to yourselves!  Bookings cannot be made through the online service and must be made over the phone.  Private Encounters will not be available March 10 – April 15.  For more information, please call the number listed below, or email us at [email protected]!
