Since the animals are used to seeing people on a daily basis, and used to the feed, many will come straight to the wagons and eat right out of the cup that you are holding. Just some of the animals that will come and eat while on the Global Wildlife Center's tour include Bison, Zebra, Camels, Eland and the parks star guests, the Giraffes. There are however many other animals that you will see while at Global Wildlife Center, including Axis Deer, Blackbuck, Fallow Deer, Red Lechwe, and even Kangaroo.

Global Wildlife Center does offer group rates for larger parties such as Boy and Girl Scout Troops or school field trips, however reservations are necessary if you group consists of 25 or more.
