About This Event

Do you love giraffe and want to help support them in the wild? Have you ever wanted to surprise a friend with an experience of a lifetime? Then come feed one of the Oakland Zoo giraffe residents. ALL FUNDS raised from tickets purchased to feed our giraffes on these special days go to the Reticulated Giraffe Project in Kenya. That's right, 100% of the proceeds goes to conservation! Giraffe feedings are $15 per person in addition to Zoo admission All children need to be accompanied by an adult Children 2 years and older must have a ticket There are two feeding times for each event, please ensure you are in line at the time your feeding starts on the correct day. Note: we cannot accommodate late arrivals, please arrive in the park well before your feeding time. Parking and walking to the giraffe exhibit may be effected by heavy weekend crowds. Giraffe feedings will take place at the giraffe exhibit. Guests must be able to walk on uneven terrain, including through grass and dirt and up an incline.  The line for feedings will begin across from the Simba Pori Lion Exhibit stairs.  Disclaimer  Giraffe are live animals with their own opinions. While they love to stand and take food from strangers, sometimes they are full or choose to walk away. The keepers try hard to ensure all participants are able to feed a giraffe and get their pictures taken while on the deck, but please be aware the giraffe have the final say and all guests must follow directions from Keepers. Advanced ticket holders can either print out tickets or have the ticket open and displayed on a smart phone. No petting or touching the giraffe is allowed. Pictures permitted.
