  • This feline-focused tour is great for early birds! You will be escorted onto Zoo grounds before we open, and travel by cart and by foot to see some of the Zoo's most iconic and fascinating wild cat species. You’ll learn about cats of all sizes, how we care for them, and what you can do to help cat species worldwide. You will even get to meet one special cat up close! We cannot guarantee which animals guests will see on any particular morning, but depending on availability, you might see a jaguar, lion, tiger, mountain lion, fishing cat, leopard, ocelot, or serval!

    Your private guide will escort you around the Zoo in a deluxe cart that has been outfitted with special screens, to socially distance your family from the guide. This private tour is perfect for a family outing—pricing is for the entire cart, up to six household members allowed. Admission is separate and required.
