Night Time Guided Tours at Budapest Zoo

Evening Walk at the Budapest Zoo

Are you looking for a unique and exciting experience during your visit to Budapest? Look no further than the Budapest Zoo’s Night Time Guided Tours! These exclusive tours offer a glimpse into the secret nocturnal life of the animals, which you would almost certainly miss during the day.

The tours take place every two weeks from mid-May to the end of September, starting at 6:30 pm, after the zoo’s regular opening hours. Participants are divided into small groups and led by experienced zoo professionals who have been working at the zoo for decades. At each stop, animal keepers will introduce you to the animals in their care and share the secrets of working with them. This means that you can get closer to the animals than during a regular zoo visit, at least to the friendlier ones.

Each tour differs from the others, so you can attend any of them and get a new experience every time! Check the details on the Zoo’s site.

One of the highlights of the tour is the behind-the-scenes access to the zoo’s botanical garden, which is not usually accessible to daytime visitors. With the help of a botanical expert, you can discover the zoo’s internationally significant exotic succulent collection and get a glimpse into the background greenhouses.

You will also have the opportunity to meet the zoo’s elephant family and learn about their daily care and training. The tour includes a visit to the zoo’s modern veterinary clinic, where you can chat with one of the zoo’s veterinarians and learn about the challenges of caring for exotic animals.

Other stops on the tour include the Xantus János House, where you can learn about the zoo’s bird breeding program, and the Giraffe House, where you can observe the zoo’s Rothschild’s giraffes up close and learn about their unique physical features.

The tour also includes a visit to the zoo’s Poison House, which houses Central Europe’s largest venomous snake exhibit, and the zoo’s Feed Center, where you can learn about the challenges of feeding over 11,000 animals every day.

Finally, the tour includes a stop at the zoo’s Shark School, where you can learn about the zoo’s young sharks and the training they undergo to prepare them for life in the aquarium.

Throughout the tour, you will be treated to a sandwich dinner and various drinks at the zoo’s employee restaurant.

Don’t miss this opportunity to experience the Budapest Zoo in a whole new way! Book your Night Time Guided Tour today and discover the secrets of the animal kingdom after dark.
