My girlfriend took me here as a surprise for my birthday and it was one of the most memorable and fun days of my life. The ZWF team worked with my girlfriend to keep the surprise and they obviously care very much about what they do and the animals on their grounds. We started off with a tour of the facility and saw all of the animals. We also signed up for the special experiences and encounters so we could feed and hold the animals that were in a good mood =). This is a day I will never forget! -Steve

We did the Special Wildlife Experience to celebrate our first wedding anniversary and it was worth every penny, especially knowing that the money we spent goes to help the animals at ZWF. We started with a private tour led by Gabby, who was an absolutely wonderful guide for the day. She took us around to the different animals enclosures, where we were able to give them some food and interact with them a bit. Then we had individual animal encounters, all of which were incredible. We especially loved the sloth encounter, but every animal encounter from the baby tiger and jaguar to every monkey and lemur was an amazing experience. I would highly recommend a visit here for those who love wildlife and learning about different species of animals.
