Where are we going today?

Want a funtastic adventure with fantastic animals? Why not head to Zootastic Park in North Carolina!

Zootastic Park is not only a place where you can have great experiences, hands-on fun and animal adventures. It's also a place where kids can learn all about the creatures that call the zoo home.

The animals are well cared for, and in comfortable environments, because it's about all the animals just as much as it is about families like YOU that visit!

From mammals, to birds and reptiles, Zootastic Park has creatures from all across the world ready to say hello. Have you ever seen an Arabian Camel up close, or seen a Blackbuck all the way from India?

Have you ever had an emu look you right in the eye, or seen a corn snake curl? Zootastic has them all!

The zoo also have private animal encounters that you can book, to really give you the experience of a lifetime. The giraffe encounter is 60 minutes of cuteness, and the Lemur Encounter lets you hang out with those cute Madagascar mammals!

If you want to really feel what it's like to work at Zootastic Zoo, they offer some "Zookeeper for a Day" experiences where you can learn how to handle reptiles, feed and train baby lion cubs, help feed the animals....just to name a few!

What an experience!

Keep an eye out for fun events that the zoo hold across the year too. They are so much more than a zoo! Funtastic animal experiences in North Carolina!
