I took this at the Virginia Safari Park in Natural Bridge, Virginia, USA. There is a pretty large fenced in section for them away from the free roaming animals. A tall walkway with a covered top allowed people to get up to their level and feed them. (Special Food Only that you could buy for them there.) It looked like way off in the back there was a gate to yet another large area for them. I hope so. I love the Giraffe.
