Q:
Hello, it is going to be my first time a The Living Desert Zoo; my interest is to feed the giraffe. How does it work? Checking admission time is the same as feeding the animal? While feeding, one could gently touch the giraffe's neck or face? or it is limiting to feeding? Is the admission fee good for the entire day at the premises, or they give you a limited amount of time to spend at the zoo? Thank you for your answers
