Kordofan & Rothschild Giraffe Experience

Details

Calling all giraffe lovers! Do you want to learn more about your favourite leggy friends? Who best to learn from than the keepers themselves....

Join our friendly, knowledgeable giraffe keepers for this hands-on experience: Get severe eyelash envy as you come face-to-face with our bachelor herd in the giraffe loft and feel dwarfed in our Africa building as you come nose to knee with our lady group. Gain an insight into care and meet our resident tall guys and gals up close and personal as you learn about how we maintain the best standards of health and welfare. Learn about the diets helping keep them in tip-top condition as you help the keeper with the feeding regime and the varying personalities of the members of our resident “tower”. Find out how we keep them entertained, interested and alert with enrichment programs which mimic their natural habitats (you may even get to help us create enrichment goodies!)

Your experience includes entry to the park for the day so you are able to enjoy the rest of the day with us.

Take Junction 36 from the M6 and follow the elephant signs or the signs towards Barrow in Furness. After Ulverston the brown “SAFARI ZOO ” Elephant Tourist Signs take over.


Please note our entrance has moved. The new entrance is located at the end of a bus route. If you are arriving by train from Dalton in Furness Station or wanting to use public transport from Barrow in Furness, Ulverston or even Kendal both the X6 and 6 stop at our new entrance.

From Barrow, Dalton in Furness, or Dalton Station – Lindal in Furness – “Melton Top” is the stop to ask for. You’ll see a pedestrian path from the bus stop which takes you right up to our zoo boundary.
