Description:

Have you ever fed a giraffe? Have you ever smelled their grassy breath? These are memories that will last you a lifetime. At Giraffe Ranch in Dade City, Florida you'll experience firsthand, the lives of giraffe and other species from around the world living under huge live oaks in a setting that is right out of Africa.

Giraffe Ranch is a licensed working ranch that specializes in exotic species as well as domestic cattle and horses. Learn about exotic animals from an expert guide from the comfort of specially designed 4-wheel drive vehicles. We'll show you our conservation efforts and how we are helping to preserve species that are extinct in the wild. Visit us for the ultimate eco-adventure.

Located in beautiful east Pasco County 45 minutes north of Tampa, Giraffe Ranch is on 47 acres of rolling countryside. With huge live oaks, native orchids and lush pastures and wetlands, our ranch is also a native wildlife preserve. Every night up to 200 Sandhill Cranes roost on our grounds.

Enjoy Giraffe Ranch farm tours with an experienced driver/guide in customized 4-WD safari tour vehicles. You will be safe, comfortable and get a terrific view, as each vehicle is fitted with shade canopies and stadium seating. You will learn about native and exotic animals and their habitats from your safari guide. You will see our ongoing conservation efforts with endangered species and some that are extinct in the wild.

On safari you can feed giraffe, zebra and other animals from Asia, Africa, and the Americas.See our working herd of Austrian Haflinger horses and our tiny Irish Dexter cattle. Giraffe Ranch has one of the largest herds of these diminutive cattle in Florida.

Giraffe Ranch is not a zoo or theme park. It is a hands-on real working game farm and wildlife preserve where animals have room to roam.

Family-owned and operated for over 12 years, Giraffe Ranch is open by reservation only. We have two tours per day at 11am and 2pm. Tours are strictly limited in size and are fun, educational adventures.

The Giraffe Ranch uses consumers to pay for their advertising at $75 a pop when it has little intention of honoring vouchers. The owner is very unprofessional and told me that the vouchers don't generate enough revenue as she refused to even check if times were available when I only had my voucher information and not the other person in my party that I had woefully convinced to get one. She told me when she looked up my information that the camel ride was even "more exclusive than the safari," said they were not for everyone so to just get my money back from Living Social and then hung up on me. Ace of Hearts Ranch for horseback riding is a much better experience in customer service. This is what Living Social had to say about my experience and it is obvious I'm not the only person who had this experience: Hi Tristen,
We are very sorry to hear about this. We have submitted this issue to our merchant team. We suggest having your other friends send in requests. This will help us gather more information as other consumers are having the same issue. We will get right back with you when we get a resolution.Thank you for your patience.
If you still have questions, please reply to this email. We're happy to help.
Thanks for LivingSocial!
