Can you feel the love in the air? This best-selling, zoo-nique experience is the perfect way to celebrate the month of love with your special someone.

Guests will learn about how animals of all shapes and sizes “feel the love” in the wild. February 11th has already sold out so don’t delay!

Penguin Walk – Now until Mid-March


Spend time with loved ones while watching the city’s favourite waddle head out on their daily winter enrichment walk (weather permitting). The zoo’s colony of king penguins is given the opportunity to venture out onto zoo grounds and show their love to their adoring spectators. The Penguin Walk is included with daily admission and takes place at 10:30 each day, weather permitting.

Sunday Safari Brunch – Each Sunday, now until November 12*


Brunch lovers rejoice! Join us each Sunday for an egg-cellent brunch experience held in the heart of Destination Africa.
