Go Behind the Scenes With Our VIP Tour

This one-and-a-half-hour tour is consistently a favorite among our guests because it offers a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes. 

Tour Highlights

Be our VIP

As a VIP guest, you’ll get to meet some of the amazing animals in our care, including some of our own resident VIPs – very important predators, a role that is crucial to the health and stability of the entire ecosystems that depend on them.

Come inside the perimeter fence (just like our staff) for a closer-than-most view. While we’re all animal lovers just like you, please note that, for the safety of our animals and guests, we will not enter habitats nor touch or interact with the animals.

Caring & Understanding

Caring for an endangered animal – especially one who may be a candidate for release one day – requires a special understanding of the species. You’ll hear how our Mexican wolves and red wolves are making history in adding to the wild populations and learn about some of our most important animals in the recovery of the species.

Meet our Ambassdadors

You’ll also get to meet some of our animal ambassadors, African painted dogs and maned wolves. We’ll also pay a visit to one of our smaller species, the swift fox.

Top off your tour by learning what types of enrichment are given to our animal family. This tour also makes a wonderful gift for a very important person in your life.

My daughter has been an animal lover from the time she could crawl. The VIP Tour was the perfect graduation gift for her, and while she can see that caring for animals in real life takes lot of work, it sure cemented her dream of becoming a biologist.
