Visit a herd of giraffes up close, and let these gentle giants eat right out of your hand! One of the few zoos to offer this unique experience. Immerse yourself in the budgie aviary and see hundreds of colorful birds as they fly down to perch on your head, arms, and shoulders.
Hop aboard the Safari Train and ride into the African Savannah. Get up close and personal with free-ranging animals while receiving a guided tour.
