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

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 host a birthday or anniversary party, or come on a Photo Safari.
