Breakfast with the Animals

It's the WILDEST breakfast in town!

After enjoying a bountiful breakfast buffet with your family, join us for a truly unique experience. Whether it's a behind the scenes visit, an upclose animal encounter, or a chance to speak with the zookeepers or zoo educators, they are all sure to be memorable!

After the program, you’ll then have the opportunity to experience Niabi Zoo’s magnificent animals as our special guest before the zoo opens for the day (during open season). Gibbon-female.png
