Other Adventures


Guided Zoo Tours


Let our train guides delight your group as they wind you through the park and share insider information. Our Guided Zoo Tours can be booked by Zoo trail or to explore our behind-the-scenes operations.  

Overnight Adventures


Book an Overnight Safari for a one-of-a-kind experience; your group will fall asleep under the stars to a wildlife lullaby after enjoying tours behind-the-scenes to meet animal residents, a night hike through the Zoo and even roasting a few s'mores. It's sure to be a memorable visit!
