Behind-the-Scenes Tours General Information

Come face to face with some of the BioPark’s most curious and endearing animals on these keeper-guided adventures. BioPark staff will share insights and fun stories about the residents at the Zoo and discuss how Our Actions Matter in conserving our natural world. (Touching meet-and-greet animals is at the keeper’s discretion and should not be expected.)


  • Times and Prices Vary. Prices include admission to the Zoo.
  • Tours are limited to 4 to 10 guests.
  • Please note age requirements by tour.
  • Children 2 and under may attend at no cost (for tours specifying “all ages”). Strollers are generally discouraged.
  • If you require handicap accessibility, please inform us when you book your tour; some variations may need to be made to the promoted tour.
  • Tours are rain or shine; please dress accordingly for the weather.
  • Bring your camera, water and sturdy shoes (no sandals).


Situations may arise when a listed animal is not available to be seen or greeted. Keepers will do their best to ensure a quality tour, and the opportunity to meet another animal should this happen.
