Can I visit the giraffes?

This gift enables you to adopt a wild giraffe at the UmPhafa Private Nature Reserve in South Africa. The reserve is not currently open to the public so visiting the giraffes is not possible. However, the reserve is run by Action for the Wild, a registered charity founded by Colchester Zoo. As such, the animals at Colchester Zoo are treated as ambassadors – to inform visitors about the charity and to help their wild African counterparts. So register your gift now, receive your free ticket for Colchester Zoo and then visit the giraffes there.

How do I use my discount voucher?

Once you have registered your gift, you will also receive a discount voucher entitling you to 5% off the cost of a Behind the Scenes Experience at Colchester Zoo. The discount applies to Experiences costing £95 or more. The voucher is valid for 12 months from the date of registration. Further details will be sent to you once you have registered this gift.
