Wedding with Giraffe

Added Experiences

Make your Zoo adventure more memorable with one of our many event extras. There are many activities available to enhance your groups experience while enjoying your time at Reid Park Zoo. The possibilities are endless.

Giraffe Feeding

Get an up close, personal one-of-a-kind opportunity to see what it’s like to stand eye to eye with a giraffe. Watch as their tongues gently take a nutritional biscuit or vegetable provided by one of our Zoo staff out of your hand.

  • Cost: Up to 100 guests and are $5 per person.

Animal Encounter

Let your group enjoy a personal Animal Encounter with our special Zoo ambassadors. Our animal encounters are interactive, educational experiences that explore a variety of animals – what they eat, how they live and what you can do to help the animals that live in your own back yard! Our animal ambassadors include lizards, snakes, small mammals, and invertebrates such as tarantulas and cockroaches. Animals will be chosen based on their health and handling records for that day.

  • Includes one education staff member and 2-3 animals each hour.
  • One hour minimum, two hour maximum.
  • Cost: $100 per hour
