Join us at The Preserve for the ultimate barn tour!
Giraffe, Rhino, Capybara, Tapir, Antelope & More...
Check-in with our keepers in The Preserve giftshop and prepare for our most in depth and diverse encounter yet!
Keepers will escort you through our new 30,000 sq ft Preserve barn, meeting a number of our animals that reside inside for our winter months!
This massive space is impressive and you never know who/what you may encounter along the way through the barn - but guaranteed to be packed full of animal interaction, education, and FUN!
Then head into our Southern white rhino area, where you will get to meet and be within feet of Tank! Keepers will cover basic rhino 101 and be happy to answer any questions, while Tank allows for up-close viewing. Prepare for amazing photos, and if Tank agrees, you can give him a scrub on the back and a treat for being a good sport! To be safe and follow regulations, there will not be direct petting by hand! Scrub brushes provided!
Then arrive to our Giraffe area, home of Tajiri & Desmond the giraffes! Treats will be provided to participants, to offer to the boys, we affectionately call "Double Trouble"! Keepers will be happy to provide giraffe facts, answer questions, and help assist with photos! You bring the camera and questions, we provide the browse, treats, and the cause of endless smiles!
