Do something a little different this Christmas and present the animal lovers in your life with an experience – the gift that keeps on giving.

Wellington Zoo has some amazing gifting options on offer this year, perfect for animal lovers of all degrees. 

For the animal enthusiast who deserves a whole year’s worth of gifting, a Zoo Crew Membership is the ultimate surprise. Unlimited visits to Wellington Zoo mean long days spent outside with some of the most beautiful and endangered species in the world. 

Want to gift this year-long treat to more than one person? We have Zoo Crew memberships for adults, children, and families – there’s something for everyone. 

Like all the experiences on offer this year, a Zoo Crew membership can be purchased online in seconds, perfect for any last-minute gift-giving panic.

For those in need of some serious bucket list action, a Close Encounter at Wellington Zoo is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. 

Whether it’s a tiger, lemur, or tarantula, this is a chance to get up close and personal with some of the most endangered and powerful animals on the planet. 

Thoughtful and unique, this is the kind of experience that most people might not think to purchase for themselves, making it even more extraordinary. 

To top it all off, 10% of the proceeds of every Close Encounter is donated to one of the conservation organisations that we partner with to support the wild populations of our animals’ wild relatives.
