Feed the Giraffes
Zoo guests have a unique opportunity to interact with our Masai giraffe family at the Giraffe Feeding Platform. Our giraffes are among the most beloved at the Houston Zoo for their charm and curiosity about their visitors!
Make your way up the ramp to the shaded feeding area for a view of the giraffes, zebra, and ostriches while you offer a crunchy lettuce leaf snack to your new long-necked pals.
Get up close with some of your favorite Houston Zoo denizens by booking one of these exclusive experiences. They come in two varieties; choose from Animal Encounters, with a focus on amazing animals, and Behind the Scenes Experiences, journeying to hidden areas of the Zoo along with the keepers who care for Zoo animals each day. Hear how you can join us and our conservation partners to help save these animals in the wild!
