  • Sit back in the comfort of your own expedition cart, as you enjoy a 60-minute guided tour of the Zoo, led by one of our knowledgeable guides. As you explore the Zoo together, your guide will share stories about the plants and animals in our care, and how our conservation work is making an impact worldwide. Questions are encouraged! Step off the cart for a look at some of your favorite critters, and snap some amazing photos as you enjoy this unique Zoo experience.

    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 tour is perfect for a family outing—pricing is for the entire cart, up to six household members allowed. Admission is separate and required.
