    • Go behind-the-scenes with hippos, zebras and a bongo at Adelaide Zoo
    • Help the keeper to perform routine checks on the animals and feed the hippos
    • Includes general admission to Adelaide Zoo, home to over 1,800 animals

    A collection of animals from all over the world live at the Adelaide Zoo. From meerkats and otters, to Malayan sun bears and Sumatran tigers, there is lots to see and do during your day at the zoo. See the animals, enjoy a picnic or visit the cafe after you take part in an intimate experience with the zoo’s two Nile hippos, Susie and Brutus.

    During this behind-the-scenes tour you will have the opportunity to help feed the hippos and assist the keeper with each hippo’s daily mouth check. This is an experience like no other, both exciting and slightly intimidating, as you come face to face with these huge beasts. Following the hippos you will go behind-the-scenes with the entire zebra family and get up close to a bongo.
