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 $535 (for North Carolina Zoo Society members) to $595 (for non-members). Please note that the non-member price provides the buyer with a one-year Family Membership to the NC Zoo Society. This Family Membership provides, for one year, free admission to the NC Zoo (and to other zoos around the country) for up to two adults in the same household, plus children in that household who are under 18 years old.
We limit the size of private tours to no more than six people. A paying 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.
