Join us as a VIP Tiger Keeper

Join our team before the zoo opens for the day to experience what it takes to care for our Sumatran tiger family and what goes on behind-the-scenes at the world famous zoo's Tiger Territory!

Arriving before the zoo opens to the general public, you'll join out team to experience what it's like to be a tiger keeper. Create enrichment, get into a bit of cleaning, see our keepers training, and learn about our work both within the zoo and out in the wild. If you're lucky, you may even get feed one of the tigers!

This is an intimate experience for up to four people only. Your tickets also includes admission to the zoo so that you can spend the rest of the day visiting our other 15,000+ animals!
