Behind the Scenes Experience

Enhance your visit to Sunset Zoo with a unique and personalized Behind the Scenes Experience for your small group when visiting.  These experiences are specifically designed for groups of up to 6 individuals, and you can choose an exploration of the Zoo's vet clinic or connect with the ambassador animals of Sunset Zoo.

Creating a Safe Experience


Safety concerns for Zoo staff, you and your guest(s) are always important when developing any experience. Therefore, we keep safety and the welfare of the animals in our care as the top priority, and staff are unable to make changes to these planned experiences. 

Fees & Booking Information

Both experiences are $50 each, and last 30 minutes.  FOSZ members receive a 10% discount on all Behind the Scenes Experiences.  Program fee does NOT include zoo admission.  Minimum two weeks advance notice required. Sunset Zoo may be able to accommodate shorter notices, but these requests will be dependent on staff availability.
