Giraffe House

At The Giraffe House Wildlife Awareness centre we provide easy access to some of Africa's wonderful wildlife and bird species. Focusing on African wildlife, Giraffe House aims to provide a place for people to enjoy the outdoors, whilst experiencing and learning about animals and why they are special.

An important member of our team is Gerry, our hand reared giraffe. Did you know that giraffes can reach almost 6 m and are therefore the tallest land mammals on earth? Gerry is joined by some other animal friends that have been selected to form part of our wildlife educational programs.

Education is our primary focus, and we cater from preschool and school groups to older groups. The wildlife education is presented in an informative wildlife conservation program suited for the individual group. We are open to general public.

Our interactive creepy crawly encounters are held at 11:00, 13:00 and 15:00 on weekends and during school holidays. It gives the visitor the opportunity to meet and hold some interesting creatures.
