Feed the Animals

Our many animal feeding experiences are easily the most exciting and unique attractions at the Elmwood Park Zoo! Make a one-of-a-kind connection with a wild member of the animal kingdom when you purchase a ticket to our giraffe feeding.  Animal feedings are weather dependent, subject to availability, and their operating schedules are subject to change. Every guest that enters the giraffe feeding experience must purchase a ticket. Tickets are available for purchase at the giraffe enclosure inside the Savanna Station pavilion.
