Giraffe Feeding - Exclusive to Well Wicked!

Well Wicked are pleased to announce that they can exclusively offer their customers this amazing giraffe feeding experience at Colchester Zoo. You will have the opportunity to go behind the scenes at the Kingdom of the Wild enclosure to meet the giraffes and to find out all about them from their dedicated keepers.

The experience will last approximately 40 minutes and includes admission into this fabulous zoo for the participant. During your experience you will have your own private giraffe feeding time alongside the giraffe keeper who will be on hand throughout the entire experience to answer any questions that you may have. Don't forget this experience is exclusive to Well Wicked so you won't find it anywhere else!

Colchester Zoo have three pure bred reticulated giraffes, one male and two females. The two females are called Lili and Isha, who arrived on 9th September 2009, both from Dvur Kralove Zoo in the Czech Republic. Lili was born on 29th July 2008 and Isha was born on 27th July 2008.

The male Epesi transferred from Nurnberg Zoo in Germany on Wednesday 2nd June. He was born in August 2008 and forms Colchester Zoo's first ever breeding group of giraffes.

As the three giraffes are still at a young age, they won’t be able to breed until they have matured, but in the future Colchester Zoo hope that they will be able to take a successful and active role in the EEP breeding programme for this species.

All of our gift experiences are presented in an attractive red case with "Congratulations - you are the lucky recipient of a Well Wicked experience day" written on the front. You will also get a DVD featuring many of our experiences. Experience vouchers can be personalised if required.

Reviews

Review 22nd August 2012
I just wanted to drop you a line to say how pleased we both were with the experience. The entire process from start to finish from buying the experience, to actually taking the experience was seamless. We both LOVED the experience and entire day at the zoo, all keepers and staff were extremely friendly and helpful and we literally couldn't have asked for more. I would highly recommend, and special thanks to the lady at Well Wicked who was outstanding with the information and assistance provided. Many thanks Shirley - Yeovil

Review 15th November 2012
The experience was perfect for my wife who is absolutely mad about giraffes. I thought she couldn't possibly learn any more than she already knew but I was wrong! She found it extremely interesting and enjoyable! Massive choice of dates available too so happy faces all round! Apparently it was the best birthday present ever!! Kind Regards Jason - London
