Animal Embassy

MARYLAND ZOO- “One of the top ten behind-the-scenes tours in America”travel

Behind-the-Scenes experiences are private, specially designed tours and are scheduled personally for you. These unique up close encounters are planned and coordinated with each individual group in mind.

Meet the Zoo’s animal ambassadors up close and personal! These animals are used for educational and promotional appearances for the Zoo, so you may recognize them from the news, but they are not typically out on exhibit. During this tour you might meet a fifteen pound rabbit, some of the world’s most endangered reptiles, tropical birds, a tree-loving porcupine and many others. Guests will also have the opportunity to tour the facilities where these animals are housed and talk to the keepers who care for and train them.


For questions or assistance with scheduling, contact the Group Sales Office.
