What is Wild Wonders?

Wild Wonders is where kids and adults can connect with animals from all over the world.  Through live tours and interactive programs, our 120 animal ambassadors and educators will take you on a dynamic adventure you won’t forget.

 

Our motto is “Rescue.  Educate.  Conserve”, and our educators will share the stories behind the animals, the adaptations they have to help them survive in the wild, and what conservation challenges they face.

 

Our goal is to excite the public and foster a desire to preserve and learn about wildlife, and the important role they play in the planet we share. 

 

All of our onsite Animal Experience tours are by appointment only, and must be booked through our website.  Your tour will be exclusively for your group, allowing your keeper / educator to focus only on you.

We are OPEN!  Book your tour now!

OUT OF AN OVERABUNDANCE OF CONCERN FOR EVERYONE’S HEALTH, NO CHILDREN UNDER 5 OR PEOPLE WITH UNDERLYING MEDICAL CONDITIONS ARE ALLOWED AT THIS TIME TO VISIT WILD WONDERS.

People 65 and over may want to consider visiting at a later date.

PLEASE READ OUR SAFETY PROTOCOLS BEFORE BOOKING YOUR VISIT!

Not comfortable venturing out yet?  We have several “virtual safaris” that you can enjoy from whatever location you choose.

 

Winter Wonders and Holiday Lights Tours

 

What would December and January be without our “Winter Wonders and Holiday Lights” tours?  These are wildly popular each year as they feature our nocturnal animals and our animals who don some special winter attire.  Your tour will be against a backdrop of festive holiday lights

Due to COVID-19, we’re offering two tour options.  Both are limited to 10 people, and both require our guests and staff to wear masks and practice social distancing.  We’ve increased the number of tours, but we anticipate they’ll still sell out.

Get your winter coat out and come join us for a lovely night.

Our Cheetahs

 

Meet our Cheetahs

Victor, Masika, and Hasani are our majestic cheetah ambassadors.  All of our unique Animal Experiences include a stop at our cheetah exercise yard where your keeper / educator will tell you more about them, their cheetah cousins in the wild, and the challenging work our conservation partners in South Africa and Botswana are doing to help stem the tide of their population decline.

Join us for our Meet and Greet a Cheetah Experience.  After a “cheetah chat” with your keeper / educator, we will bring one of the cheetahs out from his habitat on a leash!
