Behind-the-Scenes Tours

A Behind-the-Scenes Tour is very special way to visit the Zoo and the perfect opportunity to celebrate a birthday or anniversary! An experienced guide will take your private tour group through the Zoo as you get to see animal exhibits in a way the general public never sees! You'll learn about how zookeepers care for the animals that reside here, conservation issues, and get a close-up view of some of our animals along the way.
