SCAVENGER HUNT
For the competitive and independent group, this high-energy scavenger hunt requires teams to work together deciphering a series of clues that lead them to various areas all around the Zoo or Safari Park. Every team has a different version—and time is of the essence! Teams must develop a strategy for completing the challenge in the allotted time, explore exhibits to earn as many points as possible, and win the challenge. Prizes are awarded. 
Length of Time:  2 Hours

NIGHT PROWL
Explore after hours! This casual, educator-led night tour highlights some of our nocturnal animals. Guests are given the opportunity to learn inside information and get a better look at animals that are active after closing.
Length of Time:  1 Hour

SPECIAL TOUR — #1 AND #2
Choose an entertaining and educational 90-minute or 2-hour adventure, offering special behind-the-scenes views and interesting information about how we take care of our animals. It is filled with experiences and stories you can’t get anywhere else. You’ll be part of a small group visiting off-exhibit areas. See our grounds the way everyone wishes they could—from behind the scenes! 
Length of Time:  1.5 Hours or 2 Hours 

ANIMAL ENRICHMENT WORKSHOP
At the Zoo, enriched experiences enhance the quality of life for the animals in our care. Keepers spend many hours developing complex ways to challenge every species, both mentally and physically, in order to elicit species-specific behaviors and elevate meaningful daily activity levels. Our animal keepers request over 25,000 enrichment items each year—and our enrichment volunteer team needs your help! Groups will have the opportunity to create items that may include preparing and working with gourds, reclaimed fire hoses, burlap, hay beds, and other approved materials. This is an opportunity to have fun in a social environment working alongside our wonderful enrichment volunteers, all while learning and giving back to the animal community.
This experience is currently only offered at the San Diego Zoo.
Length of Time: 2 Hours
