The Dallas Zoo is a great place to spend the day. Most of the time going to the zoo means walking around and having a self-guided tour, typically far away from all of the beautiful animals. The Dallas Zoo is now offering a backstage safari tour that you will go crazy over. The experience means getting to talk to experts and ask them all your burning questions while being guided through multiple hands-on animal experiences.\nVisitors get a 90-minute tour where they get to see what an average day as a zoologist is like. They will also get to participate in an actual training session with a gorilla family. This means getting up close and personal with their baby gorillas Saambili and Mbani, which is something almost no one else gets to do!\nView this post on Instagram ADOPT A GORILLA: This the first time we've cared for two baby gorillas at the same time in almost 50 years, and we're still not over it! Saambili and Mbani are stealing hearts every single day, but we know we don't have to tell ya'll that! - Here's your chance to be part of our gorilla troop, for just $75! When you symbolically adopt a Dallas Zoo animal, you're helping us continue to provide world-class care, like habitat enhancements, enrichment items, expert health care and food. - We'll send you 2 adorable 🦍 plushes, color photos of both moms with their babies and a report from our gorilla keepers so you can keep up with your gorilla children. But don't worry, we'll handle the care and feeding of your adopted animal. You just sit back and enjoy the pride of knowing you’re making a difference in the animals’ lives at the Zoo! - ADOPT NOW ➡️ DallasZoo.com/AdoptSpecial (link in bio) A post shared by Dallas Zoo (@dallaszoo) on May 9, 2019 at 1:12pm PDT\nFeeding the giraffes is an important part of every zoo trip and during the backstage safari tour you’ll not only get to feed the giraffes, you’ll also get to feed the endangered okapi. You can get your photo taken with the okapi so you’ll have a one of a kind souvenir to remember your trip by. But the fun doesn’t stop there, you will also get a chance to hang with tamanduas, flamingos and an African created porcupine.\nView this post on Instagram 🦒 . #dallaszoo #dallastx #animalfreak #ifedagiraffe #target #forever21 #ralphlauren #aldo #zara #birthdayweekend #ShareMyTargetStyle A post shared by Darbie Duff (@darbieduff) on Apr 12, 2019 at 2:27pm PDT\nThe backstage tour is only running until November 6th and only takes place on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Tickets range from $85 to $125 depending on if you’re a zoo member or not.
