Laugh, giggle, and have tons of fun as you swim with our baby otters and their friends!  You’ll have the opportunity to feed, and directly interact with a variety of incredible creatures such as a kangaroo, baby giraffes, mini pigs, mini deer, and more! This is a wildlife experience unlike any other.  We put you up right in the center of the action with exotic creatures from all over. You’ll take home a permanent grin, and memories that last a lifetime.

Giraffe Experience

Our giraffe love attention!  And you will get plenty of it as you feed the worlds tallest animal.  We allow private bottle feedings with our newest baby Blue, and the feeding of our biggest Bud.  Both enjoy interacting, and posing for all your selfies.

The Experience


During the two hour experience you will be in the pool with a group of playful otters who will be as fascinated by you interacting around them! Laugh, giggle and have lots of fun as you encounter these magical creatures. You’ll also have an opportunity to meet, feed and/or directly interact with a variety of other incredible creatures such as a kangaroo, baby giraffes, mini pigs, and mini deer. This is a wildlife experience like no other that puts you right in the center of the action with exotic creatures. You’ll take home a permanent grin and memories to last a whole lifetime.
