Private safari tours

The Private Safari tour is the most comfortable and exclusive way to take in the sights and sounds of the Zoo. Tour includes admission to the park, a personal guide, and private shuttle. Private Safari tours stop at every major habitat and your tour guide will lead you throughout the park, weaving animal facts, park history, and more into a fun and engaging two-hour safari that you’ll remember for a lifetime. Visit the state-of-the-art animal hospital to learn how we provide the highest-level care for all our animals, and discover how our animal care team works tirelessly to help save species threatened with extinction. You’ll also explore the District Commissioner’s House, a unique location typically closed to the public, and relish in a private viewing of the majestic Amur leopard.

All private safaris require advanced booking of at least 48 hours and are subject to availability.
