Virtual Zoo Tours

It’s time to spice up the monotony of lockdown life and meet some of Merlin Entertainments’ furry friends with our brand new Wild at Home Tours! These live and private virtual tours offer something for everyone from the comfort of your own home.  From hanging out with Koalas to getting up close with reptiles, each tour provides an interactive and informative virtual experience. 

Guided by your very own knowledgeable WILD LIFE Keepers, the 45-minute virtual tours take you on a journey to meet animals of all shapes and sizes, learn from animal experts and ask  all of your burning questions, such as ‘why is wombats poo shaped like cubes?’

Each Wild at Home Tour allows for up to 100 of your friends, family, and colleagues to join each tour, which makes it the perfect experience for:

  • Companies looking to reward their hardworking employees
  • Office managers looking to mix up their regular Friday zoom drinks with an animal adventure
  • Schools looking for interesting and educational ways to keep their students engaged in online learning
  • Universities with international students who are looking to encounter Australian wildlife without leaving their home
  • Large groups of family or friends who would like to shake up their next virtual social catch up.
