Close Encounters of the Wild Kind at the Knoxville Zoo!
Ooooo, guess what’s back for the summer? Close Encounters of the Wild Kind, a chance to go behind-the-scenes for a personal introduction to some of our high-profile animal residents! If you’ve never done this, it’s just about the coolest thing ever for an animal lover. You can meet elephants, feed giraffes, mingle with a penguin, or scratch a giant tortoise, and the groups are small and intimate; only 10 people per tour. Plus you get to chat with their keepers and take some awesome photographs and the proceeds go directly to benefit the animals. It’s the most exotic fun you can have for $20, we daresay! But reservations are highly recommended-details below:
