A little further afield and a beautiful drive out towards the Helderberg region, you will find The Giraffe House.
They have a huge list of South African wildlife including Vervet Monkeys, Meerkats, Eland, Bontebok, Giraffe (obvs), Cape Grysbok, Duiker, Springbok, Impala and Zebra.
It’s a great selection of well-kept animals that look healthy and happy, specifically check out Gerry (giraffes can grow up to 6m tall, making them the tallest mammals in the world).
There’s also reptiles and birds, you get to grab some feed at the entrance and feed the herbivores to your heart's content.
The kids love it, so will you!
