Wildlife Encounters offers a one of a kind entertaining and educational birthday party for your child. Six animal ambassadors will visit your location for an exciting educational 40-45 minute show. Kids and adults will absolutely love seeing, learning, and interacting with some of our amazing animal ambassadors.
The birthday child will be the star of the show by being our "Junior Zookepper" and helping hands on with some of the animals. Including activies like feeding a banana to a 30 lb tortoise, call up their friends to help hold a 6 foot long snake, or place hissing cockroaches on their parents and friends.
Birthday parties are offered 7 days a week. To schedule a party please email or call.
Birthday parties are $275 if held within Omaha and surrounding suburbs (Gretna, Papillion, Bellevue, Elkhorn, and Bennington). Classroom birthday parties are $225. Classroom parties are held at the child's school's classroom during school hours. If the party is held outside of Omaha the cost may vary.
