Please note, Adelaide Zoo will be closed on Sunday, 19 November 2017 to the general public (including members) until 2pm while we host a special event. We apologise for any inconvenience caused as a result of this partial closure.
Unfortunately this exclusive Behind the Scenes experience is currently unavailable until at least April 2018. VIP Panda will recommence once the outcome of this years’ breeding efforts has been determined.
Behind the Scenes Experience – Proudly Sponsored by AGL
Adelaide Zoo proudly cares for Australia’s only Giant Pandas, Wang Wang and Fu Ni, and with VIP Panda you can go behind the scenes with their keepers for an exclusive opportunity to meet the famous and adorable pair. You’ll get to venture into their private quarters, assist the keepers as the pandas undergo their daily training and health checks and experience a rare chance to hand feed a panda. Learn more about our Giant Panda conservation program over morning tea with the keepers as Wang Wang and Fu Ni explore their exhibit and enjoy their breakfast.
