We see the Treasure Valley look more and more like it did before the pandemic with each passing day. Traffic patterns have returned to normal, and more people are working from their offices again. One of the things that Boise area families enjoyed before the pandemic was a trip to Zoo Boise.

Sure, Zoo Boise was open throughout COVID, but several adaptions had to be made. One of those adaptions was the closure of their animal experiences. Among those experiences were the private anteater feeding experience, the private lion experience, the private giraffe experience, the private penguin experience, and the tortoise meet and greet.

Zoo Boise recently announced on their Facebook page that two of these experiences are coming back. You can now purchase the anteater feeding experience as well as the private lion experience.

The anteater feedings happen at 4:15 on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays. The cost is $30 for the first person and $20 for each additional person, but no group can exceed four people.

The private lion experiences happen at 10am each day. The cost is $50 for the first person and $20 for each additional person, but no group can exceed ten people.

Zoo admission is required but is not included in the cost of the private experience. General admission is $11 for those 12 and up and $8 for kids.

If you had wondered if getting back to normal was ever going to happen, seeing Zoo Boise open up some of these experiences is a good sign for things to come all over the Treasure Valley.
