This private, guided tour is the ideal way to experience the Endangered Wolf Center, the place from where every Mexican wolf in the wild today can trace their roots. This exclusive tour includes only your party and your tour guide.

Tour Highlights

A tour customized to your group

Tailored to what you most want to see and learn, we’ll share insights we’ve gathered over five decades of working with and for wolves, foxes and painted dogs. Because private tours tend to be smaller and cater to your party, you can decide where you’d like to spend more of your time, and stay longer at your favorite habitats. 

Rewriting the tale of the big bad wolf

Learn why these apex predators and keystone species are essential to the survival of entire ecosystems who depend on them. On this tour, you’ll get a chance to know wolves the way we know them. Naturally shy around humans, wolves are loyal, intelligent and highly family oriented, with social bonds so strong they often howl to mourn the passing of pack members for days.

Experience other animal encounters along the way

We’ll also share an inside look at three additional endangered species in our care: African painted dogs, maned wolves, and swift foxes. Weighing in at only 4-6 pounds we have to warn you, or swift foxes have been known to steal a few hearts.

The Private Tour was perfect for us and my brother’s family to do together. We loved having the guide to ourselves, moving at our own pace and meeting other animals we hadn’t met before.
