Behind the Scenes Tours 

This tour is your "backstage pass" to the zoo! Explore the zoo’s commissary where you'll see how we feed over 300 animals in the zoo family! You'll also visit two off-exhibit areas and the animals that live there.

Kids under 16 must be accompanied by a paying adult (ages under 4 are not recommended to participate). Tour must include at least 5 people (if you have fewer, you'll pay for 5 people according to the rates below) and no more than 10 people. Tours are scheduled on a request basis only. Call (208) 612-8254 to schedule. 

Cost: $40 per person for TPZS members
               $50 per person for nonmembers
                Fee above is in addition to regular zoo admission
TPZS membership does cover admission, but does not cover program cost, and does give members a discount. 

Make sure to sign up at least two weeks in advance. Behind the scenes tours are available for scheduling from May 30-Sept. 3, 2022. Questions? Call (208) 612-8254.
