Breakfast with Giraffes at the San Antonio Zoo

If you are going to visit the zoo, why not get an early start and have breakfast with the giraffes? Or a hippo?

Last week, we were invited to experience Beastly Breakfast, a new experience at our San Antonio Zoo! We enjoyed a buffet style breakfast, participated in a private feeding and took pictures with the zoo's three giraffes, Alan, Brayden and Cosmo!

Breakfast includes eggs, sausage, bacon, pancakes, a yogurt bar, an assortment of pastries, and refreshments.

Animal Care Specialists are on site and great at answering any questions you have, from where the giraffes were born to the conservation efforts of the San Antonio Zoo.

Each paid person recieves three pieces of lettuce during giraffe feed.

And you get to take an amazing family photo! I think Brayden, this 4 year old reticulated giraffe, will be on our Christmas card!

Children 2 and under are free, Children older than 2 are $19.99 and Adults are $24.99. When you remember that regular giraffe feedings are $7 for 3 pieces of lettuce, Beastly Breakfast is a great deal for such a memorable experience!

And every giraffe feeding helps the San Antonio Zoo's partnership with the Giraffe Conservation Foundation (GCF).

Just added are Beastly Breakfasts with a Uma, the hippo! You can enjoy breakfast inside the Africa Live exhibit, plus, animal care specialists will also be on hand to chat about the hippo, her care, and you can see her get her breakfast.

You can grab tickets to the zoo here and make reservations for Beastly Breakfasts here!
