Gerry Giraffe – star giraffe of Free Willy 4

Gerry Giraffe

There we were, at The Giraffe House, and unbeknown to us we had a famous actor in our midst. According to iAfrica, baby Gerry is a star in the soon-to-be-released movie Free Willy 4. At the time I wondered why she immediately rushed over to us when I pulled my camera from my bag! To think that she's only just over a year old and already a star! Kids grow up so fast.

On a more serious note, it's worthwhile taking your kids to see the few animals at The Giraffe House, especially since they have "animal encounters" each day at 11h00, 13h00 and 15h00, showing snakes, birds, tortoises, a speedy caracal (called Felix) and the perhaps the coolest of all, Gerry’s 16-litre bottle-feeding.

    I think my kids will love the Giraffe House as well. We were at the Kragga Kamma Game Park in PE the other day and they loved see the giraffe passing right in front of the car

    She’s very cute! I love giraffes.

    I’m not so fond of that massive powerline in the background, though (I mean, for the animals, not your shot).

    Yeah Firefly, I think they will enjoy it. It’s just pitty that Gerry’s all alone in the enclosure – I do feel sorry for the baby. :(

    mjw, Giraffe’s aren’t THAT tall… no need to worry. ;)

    I was wondering where this place was – not that Joshua, who is nearly 1 years old now would appreciate it as yet, but it is good to know where we can take him on a family field trip when he is around 2 to 3 years old.

    I am looking forward to Free Willy 4, not that I am a fan of the movie, but to see if I can recognise many of the locations around Cape Town where they shot the movie. They shot parts of the movie in the Gordon’s Bay harbour where my mom, who manages the GBYC, played host to the crew for a day or two. :)

    Glen, (un)fortunately the fact that Cape Town (and Gerry) will be in the movie is prolly the only reason why I’ll go and see id… :)

    Mandy, I know. You’re just w-ay too easy to mess with. :D

    Beverley, you’ll just have to sell up in the UK and move out here… ;)
