Rhino Encounter

Wild Encounters

  • Thu/Fri2 PM
  • At the Zoo
    Directions
  • $35/$40members/non-members

Get up close and personal with the rhinos at SCZ. You’ll have the rhinos – literally – eating out of your hands while you chat with a rhino keeper and learn how we care for them at the Zoo and how you can help protect them in the wild. 

Zoo admission or membership ID is required. Admission is not included in the cost of the Encounter ticket. Encounters for children 2 and under are free. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult who must also purchase a ticket for the encounter. Maximum capacity for Rhino Encounters is 10 guests. Groups will not be guaranteed private encounters unless they purchase all 10 spaces.

Please arrive at the Rhino Habitat 10 minutes prior to scheduled encounter. Late arrivals may not be able to be accommodated. Encounters are non-refundable, but may be rescheduled if canceled more than 48 hours in advance. Sedgwick County Zoo reserves the right to cancel and reschedule encounters for any reason such as weather or animal welfare concerns.
