Spend quality time with some amazing animals!
A private tour of The Creature Conservancy is perhaps the best way to see the animals up close and interact with them. These tours can be taken by a single individual, a family group or any group of up to 6 people.
Guests will not only learn much about the various species of animals on the tour, but also about the individual animals' personalities, likes, dislikes and often the story of how they came to reside at the conservancy. In many cases, your guide will be giving this information from within the animals' enclosures.
These tours may sometimes take you into the non-public areas of the conservancy and give you a chance to see animals that are not on public display. A tour generally lasts about one and a half hours and includes opportunities to touch and feed some of the animals. Picture taking is allowed with most animals!.
Tours are by reservation only. The cost for a guided tour is $100 for two people. Each additional person (up to a maximum of 6 people) is $20.

When can I take a guided tour? Tours are subject to staff availability, but given enough notice, they can generally be arranged at times that are convenient for you. Please fill out the "Tour Guide" planner below to get started!
What will we get to see if we schedule a guided tour? You can expect to see many of the following species: macaws, Arctic foxes, black vultures, turkey vultures, cougar, barking deer (muntjac), emu, crested porcupines, owls, peafowl, giant tortoises, cravens, kangaroos, sloth, alligator snapping turtle, American alligators, prairie dogs and more.
Can we pick and choose the animals we get to see? We are happy to try to accommodate your choices, but for a variety of reasons (see note below), not all animals can be viewed at all times.
Note: We are constantly adapting our facilities to improve conditions for our current animals or accommodating unexpected rescues. This frequent state of flux means that we can’t always predict what can or will be seen on a particular tour or promise access to all areas. Also, some animals may not be on display because they are being used for a presentation in our classroom, or because they are off site at an event. Breeding seasons, skin shedding, weather, enclosure cleaning and routine veterinary care are other reasons you may occasionally not be able to see expected animals.
