Giraffe Feeding Platform

About Our Giraffe Feedings

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 and ostriches while you offer a crunchy lettuce leaf snack to your new long-necked pals.

Giraffe Feedings happen daily at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Mask Update

Following the latest mask recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Houston Zoo will no longer require guests to wear facial coverings while visiting, unless participating in a paid animal encounter such as a scheduled behind-the-scenes tour or giraffe feeding. More Info >
