“The Total Adventure Package allows guests one-day access to unlimited interactive experiences at the Zoo, all for a flat fee,” said Erin Scott, Senior Marketing and Public Relations Manager. “It’s a great way to enjoy some of our most popular activities again and again throughout the day.”  

Guests with the Total Adventure Package bracelets have access to Winged Wonders, the colorful spectacles of butterflies and hummingbirds, as many times as they wish throughout the day. The pavilion allows the butterflies and hummingbirds to fly freely, while guests observe their natural behaviors and interactions from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily.

Giraffe feedings are one of the most popular activities at The Living Desert and with the Total Adventure Package, guests can get up-close and personal with the herd of nine giraffe, feeding them lettuce and taking selfies as many times as they wish from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

New this year, The Living Desert is offering Camel Connection, generously sponsored by Edeltraud M. McCarthy. At Camel Connection guests can take part in a variety of experiences including feeding, grooming, training, and more. The activities vary throughout the day.
