Behind the Scenes Tours

The Little Rock Zoo is excited to offer Behind the Scenes Tours! Visit the areas of some of our most popular animals and get an experience like none other!  Proceeds from the tours go directly to the Little Rock Zoo’s Conservation Fund which helps animals all around the world. These tours fill up fast and are limited to six (6) people per tour so call now to book your tour!

You can step into the world of an elephant keeper and see how they build relationships with our amazing elephants! Choose from one of three interactive opportunities as you hear stories about our herd, see them up close, and make memories with your friends and family. 

Book your elephant experience now!

You can even find out what it takes to take care of penguin waddle (group.) Find out how they are fed, how they are cared for, and the special role the Zoo plays in the species' survival.

Extend your animal experience with a Meet & Greet with a few of our Ambassador Animals! Interactions with ambassador animals will take place at 1:00pm prior to going to your final Behind-the-scenes destination.
