      The Experience

      It’s not everyday that you get to come face to face with a red panda. While its name suggests otherwise, the red panda is related more to the raccoon and skunk than the black-and-white giant panda. The SF Zoo has partnered with IfOnly to give you and your family a chance to meet this little-known, rarely seen endangered species.

      In one of our most popular San Francisco activities, join the zookeeper to meet the red pandas at their habitat custom-designed by Discovery Channel's "Treehouse Masters." The 20 to 30 minute tour will give you a chance to ask questions and observe these fascinating animals and depending on their appetite, hand-feed them bamboo! Your tour includes complimentary admission for the rest of the day at this world-famous zoo nestled in nearly 100 acres by the Pacific Ocean. The Zoo features 2,000 animals, keeper talks, food venues, a historic carousel, and the “Little Puffer” train ride for the little ones.

      All ages are welcome. This experience is a wonderful way to wake up curious young minds and to teach them the importance firsthand of Red Panda and other animal conservation efforts. Proceeds from your tour purchase support the San Francisco Zoo’s conservation education programs both at the Zoo and in the wild.
