CRAZY ABOUT CATS

Travel by cart and foot to some of the Zoo's most iconic and fascinating cat species on this early morning tour focusing on wild cats! Go behind the scenes with your tour guide for a private viewing and/or visits with some of our famous felines and other animal friends. Visit private keeper areas and learn about cats of all sizes, how our keepers care for them, and what you can do to help cat species worldwide. We cannot guarantee which animals guests will see on any particular morning, but depending on availability—always subject to change—you might see a jaguar, lion, tiger, mountain lion, fishing cat, leopard, ocelot, or serval!
