On a recent trip to San Antonio, we found ourselves with a few extra hours in the city before our flight. To my surprise, I was so excited to discover that the San Antonio Zoo offered a Giraffe Encounter that brings you up close and personal with the beautiful animals.
We lined up for the first feeding at 12:30pm, and happily handed over $7 for 3 lettuce leaves to give to the giraffes. It was incredible. The giraffes were so beautiful up close. Calm and eager to eat, we were warned to watch our hair as the giraffes often confuse it for food! After feeding them the lettuce and posing for a photo, we continued our adventure around the zoo.
If you find yourself in the San Antonio area, this experience is not to be missed!
