    What to Expect
    Visit: Adelaide Zoo, Frome Rd, Adelaide, South Australia 5000 Australia

    The Adelaide Zoo proudly cares for Australia’s only Giant Pandas, Wang Wang and Fu Ni. With VIP access to the giant pandas, 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 under your keeper's supervision. Learn more about this Giant Panda conservation program over morning tea with the keepers as Wang Wang and Fu Ni explore their exhibit and enjoy their breakfast. This is a shared experience with no more than 6 participants at a time.

    This experience also includes a full-day access to Adelaide Zoo to experience the lush botanic CBD zoo. The VIP Panda Experience runs one hour before the Zoo opens, from 8:30am - 9:30am (approximately). At which point, the rest of Adelaide Zoo will open (every day) at 9:30am, and close at 5pm.
