Photo Day at the Houston Zoo


“An African Forest Safari”

Saturday, September 12, 2015
7:00 a.m. – 9:00 a.m.


Want a chance to get unique photos of our giraffes, chimpanzees, gorillas and red river hogs? Join us for Photo Day as we highlight a few of our African Forest ambassadors!

Photo Day allows photographers of all skill levels a chance to visit the Zoo and take great animal photos, all before the Zoo opens. Guests can enjoy the cooler morning weather and lighter crowd, plus see the animals at a time of day when they are most active. A Zookeeper from the Primate and Hoofstock team will also be available to talk about our featured animals and answer any questions.

A continental breakfast is provided for event guests before they begin their African Forest Safari.  To ensure a great experience, please note that there will be walking for this event so event guests are encouraged to wear appropriate shoes.

This event is rain or shine. All activities are included in your ticket price. Space is limited so buy your tickets today!
