Looking for just that most unique experience of a lifetime? Well you are looking at the right place....have you considered a "Behind the Scenes" tour at the Zoo?

You will be brought behind the scenes of some pretty amazing animals. Your adventure begins by getting an opportunity to get up fairly close to one of the following: hippo, lion, tiger, baboon, black bear, red panda, a variety of reptiles and few others can be arranged depending on the size of your group and as always in a safe; but fun environment.

Each encounter would include the following:

  • admission for two adults to enjoy the Zoo for the day
  • behind the scenes with one of the animals listed above
  • 45 minutes to 1 hour experience
  • opportunity to learn more about the animal itself (for example, what he or she likes to eat, what are their likes or dislikes, some stories to share)
  • opportunity to feed a snack or treat to the animal
  • photos would be taken and you would go home with a USB of a lifetime experience!

Prices for the tours are $175 for two people

All Behind the Scenes tours are based on availability and, of course, changes may take place if an animal is under the weather for the day or requiring some special time alone. Please note that we are primarily a non-touch facility and this behind the scenes opportunity is about learning about the animals at a safe distance with the keeper, not about touching and/or playing with the animal. We do not go into the enclosure with the animals.

For more information on this unbelievable experience of a lifetime, please fill out Behind The Scenes Info/Registration Form and email it to or contact Ashley Rafaoui at 604.856.6825 ext 25
