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.

$7 for giraffe food

More than one person may bring the food up to the platform; you may wish to have one of you snap a quick photo while the other feeds the giraffes!

Look for the Feeding Platform kiosk near the Twiga Cafe to purchase your ticket. The kiosk opens just before feeding times.
