Wild Encounters

Is there a Zoo animal you’d love to meet?  Reserving a Wild Encounter may be right for you! The Wild Encounters program includes a private meeting with your choice of Animal Ambassador for you and a guest (minimum age restrictions apply). Wild Encounters take place at the Zoo, are subject to animal and staff availability, and require advance reservations.

To learn more about available animals, fees, and reservations, please visit our online registration portal and select the "Zoo Birthday Parties & Special Experiences" tab.

Did you know you can gift a Wild Encounter?! Wild Encounter gift certificates can be purchased on our online registration portal. Visit the "Gifts for Zoo Lovers" tab.
