Welcome to Giraffe House.co.za
The Giraffe House Wildlife Awareness Centre is a relatively new centre providing easy access to some of our wonderful wildlife and bird species. Focusing on African wildlife, Giraffe House aims to provide a place for people to enjoy a family picnic in the fresh air, whilst experiencing and learning about animals and conservation.

Education is our primary focus, and we cater from preschool and school groups to older groups. The wildlife education is presented in an informative wildlife conservation program suited for the individual group. Group guided tours will also be available on request.

Recreation and relaxation are important in today's busy world and Giraffe House offers the family an opportunity to spend affordable quality time together outdoors. Jungle gyms and a giraffe jumping castle are available. There is no restaurant on the premises, but a refreshment kiosk supplies snacks and something to drink. Visitors are welcome to bring a picnic basket. Please just take note of our no-alcohol policy. Giraffe House is also a fun kiddiesÂ’ party venue.

Our daily animal encounters/shows are very popular and are held at 11:00, 13:00 and 15:00. It gives the visitor the opportunity to meet and hold some interesting creatures.
Please contact us to confirm shows on Monday - Friday as show times may vary according to school visits/large groups (Tel: 021 884 4506)
