All About Giraffes

Locally Grown. World Famous.

Don’t miss seeing Cheyenne Mountain Zoo’s renowned giraffe herd in their home, the African Rift Valley exhibit. The largest giraffe herd at any zoo, the herd “stampedes” outdoors most mornings, spending the day grazing and relaxing in their savannah home.
