Roar With Lions From 5 Feet Away! Take a Tour of our Zoological Park!

Due to Hurricane Florence weather, GIRL SCOUT DAY will be moved to the rain date on Sept. 22nd, 2018

Visit over 20 species of animals wildly up close

On a tour of our zoological park, you’ll walk the three-quarter-mile path with a highly-trained guide and gain an understanding of each species’ ecological importance. You’ll also get to know each animal’s individual personality and story. We’re about reconnecting you to wildlife—so every tour is a conversation.

Public Tours

Looking for an amazing adventure? Meet our animal residents wildly up close! Available on weekends and select holidays.

Private Tours

Looking for a more intimate experience? Come on a private tour of the park or meet a big cat; host a birthday or anniversary party, or come on a Photo Safari.
