Up-Close Animal Encounters

Backstage Experience

This adventure is for guests 5 years of age and older.

Are you looking for a more exclusive and in-depth look at Denver Zoo?

If so, Backstage Experience is for you! Your private tour takes place behind-the-scenes with our animal ambassadors. Animal abassadors welcome attendees to special events, visit schools and even make media appearances, but zoo guests don t usually get to visit their home. This backstage area has over 90 animal residents, so you might get to touch a turtle, be tickled by a tamandua s tongue, say hello to a llama or even meet a tropical bird. This exclusive tour includes a variety of up-close encounters, followed by two animal feeding or training demonstrations. When your experience wraps up, you are free to enjoy the zoo at your leisure.

Giraffe Feeding

This adventure is for guests of all ages.

*PLEASE NOTE - Children under the age of 16 must be accompanied by a paid participant that is 16 years of age or older

Our new Giraffe Feeding will give you a chance to hand feed one of our resident giraffes. In addition to the feeding, you will have exclusive access to giraffe experts that will help you get to know each member of the herd. You will be in awe of their long necks, rough tongues and adorable ossicones. Just watch out for the drool!
