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 guide will escort you around the Zoo in a deluxe cart. Admission is separate and required. If anyone in your party will be using a wheelchair during the tour, after booking please call 619-718-3000.
