One of Our Most Popular Adventures!
Guests on our “Very Important Animal Person” Tour enjoy an adventure, approx. 3 hrs. long, while getting to know our animals in a personal and hands-on environment. The VIAP includes a close and full contact encounter with FOUR of our “Wild Things.” A catered deli style lunch with the keepers is also provided.
VIAP guests take a look behind the scenes as a private group, not with the general public. These tours are on a first come, first serve basis and made by reservation only. Animals showcased on this tour vary depending on season, weather, trainers, and guests. A fun, safe, educational experience and photo/video opportunity of a lifetime. Allow the animals to explain how deserving they and their wild counter parts are of your care and support. Few present our conservation message better.

(Reservation cancelations for this tour must happen 7-days prior to booking date – no exceptions for any reasons as we incur expenses at this time.
