The Werribee Zoo Giraffe feeding experience is probably the closest you will get!
Come right up to these magnificent creatures and have them stare you right in the eye as you feed them luscious leaves, potatoes and carrots.
Perfect for an anniversary, birthday or if you just feel like spoiling someone to no end. The entire experience is completely surreal and a truly unforgettable one at that.
The giraffe’s tongue is so long and wraps around your hand as it tries to take the potato and carrot bits away from you! But be careful, they are quite strong, and in trying to get the food from you, they may be able to lift you in the air!
Of course, this has never actually happened, but just as a precautionary measure, we would suggest keeping your feet firmly on the ground. No matter how hilarious the results would otherwise be for your partner.
This experience is perfect for the warmer months but also great when it’s cool, and you’re all wrapped up in your jumpers and got the big mud boots on to stroll around the beautiful giraffes and find out more about them.
With a fantastic tour guide providing you with interesting facts, tips and information, you won’t get a single second to be bored.
After the feeding session, you get a bit of a tour around the rest of the zoo on your way back, with rhinos, hippos, gazelles and monkeys aplenty!
