Take a stroll across the elevated viewing platform and get eye-to-eye with a giraffe. The covered boardwalk gives guests a breathtaking view across a replica of the African Savanna. Giraffe walk and graze freely in this 2.5 acre exhibit adjacent to the Savanna Blooms botanical gardens.
As part of a collaboration between the Zoo and Jacksonville University called The Science Of..., we produced a video that shows you what giraffes eat other than the delicious leaves you can feed them on the Overlook. Learn more of the topics discussed in the video by viewing the companion guide to the video.
