BIG NEWS for the treasure valley

Boise, Idaho. Zoo Boise shared big news with the Treasure Valley in their latest Twitter post on Wednesday, Jan. 25!

Zoo Boise just launched their new Tiger Private Animal Experience! Locals can now book a one-on-one private experience with Akasha, Zoo Boise's newest tiger and furry family member!

Hosted by Zoo Boise zookeepers, patrons will receive an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at Akasha's training and behavioral development. Because education is at the heart of everything Zoo Boise does, the experience includes a Q&A session with Akasha's trainer.

Experiences are booked out one week in advance, and the cost is not included in general zoo admission. Gift cards for Private Animal Experiences can be purchased here!
