The Zoo Society is happy to work with you to arrange a private, behind-the-scenes tour featuring your favorite animal. Tour prices range from $525 (for NC Zoo Society members) to $585 (for non-members). Please note that the non-member price provides the buyer with a one-year Individual Membership to the NC Zoo Society. This Individual Membership guarantees him/her free admission to the NC Zoo (and to other zoos around the country) for one year and also allows him/her to purchase discounted Zoo admission tickets ($2 off) for friends or relatives who want to visit, too.
We limit the size of private tours to no more than six people. An adult must accompany any child younger than 16.
All or nearly all of the purchase price is tax-deductible as a donation to the NC Zoo Society, the private non-profit organization that supports the NC Zoo.
