The Wild Wildlife Scavenger Hunt

Lions and tigers and bears—oh, yeah!

See the best of the Bronx Zoo as you discover creatures you never even suspected were there—or anywhere! As your team searches for answers to quirky questions about the animals you encounter, you’ll find out why it’s hard to grab a degu, how your neck is like a giraffe’s, what the Good Humor Man might deliver to a tiger, and how to look right through a grizzly bear. The game also includes Team Photo Challenges, to spur your creativity and sharpen your eyes.

This hunt is a great team-building activity when you’re looking to surprise and shake up your colleagues or friends by putting them in a completely unusual environment on an out-of-the-box adventure. It’s been recommended by the New York Times and Time Out New York.

Big groups welcome!

We can easily accommodate large groups at the zoo. We staged a hunt for more than 200 employees of American Express here. Plus, the zoo has indoor and outdoor spaces for private events, from barbecues to fine dining.

The Wild Wildlife Scavenger Hunt for Kids

If you can talk to the animals…

…you’ll be cheating on this surprising safari. Have a roaring good time with your favorite group of kids as you work together to solve clever puzzles while visiting curious creatures in their natural habitats. One minute you’ll be inside a tropical rain forest; the next, you’ll be peering across the African savannah. This scavenger hunt will help you create lasting memories—and cost you a lot less than an actual safari.

Our surprising Team Photo Challenges will encourage kids to get even more creative and provide hilarious souvenirs of your adventures. Monkey see, monkey do? You just might witness that phenomenon as your little monkeys try to get actual monkeys to smile for the camera!

Many school groups and birthday celebrants have found this scavenger hunt to be a great way to get even more fun out of an amazing zoo in a limited amount of time.

Kids must be accompanied by an adult, and vice versa. For ages 7 and up.
