The Basics

Admission to the Calgary Zoo grants visitors access to all the animal exhibits (divided into geographical regions), as well as keeper talks, feedings, and animal behavior demonstrations. You can also prebook a designated time to see the zoo’s four giant pandas. Special experiences not part of basic admission include an early morning panda breakfast before the exhibit opens to the public, and Safari Sunday Brunch in the heart of the Destination Africa area.

When to Get There
