Bring the Zoo to You!

Although the ZOOmobile is not traveling away from the Zoo this fall due to COVID-19 precautions, that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a ZOOmobile program with your group!

We have reimagined some of our most popular ZOOmobile programs as virtual experiences. Book your Virtual ZOOmobile Program today!

Book a Virtual Zoomobile Program

Virtual ZOOmobile Programs are 30-minute live, interactive presentations featuring up-close encounters with three of the Zoo’s Animal Ambassadors. You can schedule your private program on any Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday at 9 am, 11 am, or 1 pm through December.

Registration Fee: $175

Different themes are available, and you are welcome to book more than one Virtual ZOOmobile Program this fall! For each program, we recommend no more than 25 devices, but we can also see larger groups of up to 150 devices.
