Go behind-the-scenes at the Oakland Zoo and venture into Zoo habitats to participate in one of four different food spreads: Elephant All-You-Can-Eat, Baboon Breakfast, Sun Bear Buffet, or Grizzly Grub, and also, Giraffe Meet-n-Munch!
This event, formerly known as Feast for the Beasts, allows you the rare opportunity to place food around habitats before the animals go out for the day. Spread produce for the elephants, hide seeds for the baboons, spread snacks for the sun bears, or toss treats around the grizzly yard. This year, the zoo is also offering the opportunity to feed a giraffe!
Tickets to participate in the animal spreads are $10 per experience in addition to regular Zoo admission, with proceeds going to support Oakland Zoo’s outstanding Animal Care work. Giraffe feedings are $15 with all proceeds going to the zoo’s conservation partner the Reticulated Giraffe Project in Kenya.
Pre-registration required for animal experiences. Buy your Zoo admission ticket at the door – you do not need an advanced Zoo reservation if you purchase a ticket for this special experience. Additionally:
- No one under of the age of 2 is allowed on habitat due to safety concerns of uneven terrain.
- Guests 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult to attend.
- No strollers are allowed and the animal habitats are not wheelchair accessible.
- Please note that the habitats contain uneven terrain and moderate inclines in places.
