Changes coming to the Zoo this February

NORFOLK, VA – Bring your bestie, baby or bae for this sweet admission discount for visits during the month of February. Beginning Tuesday, February 1, 2022, purchase two Zoo admissions for just $22, good through February 28, 2022. See the new baby giraffe, Mchanga or check-in on six-month old Mosi the rhino. Even though the temperatures may be low, many of the animals enjoy the cooler weather and can still be seen in their habitats.

Other changes are coming to the Zoo in February, which includes guests no longer needing to make advance reservations or have a timed entry. The Zoo originally required advance reservations after opening its doors from the three-month closure due to Covid-19. During its quietest time of the year, the decision was made to slowly ease back into the walk-up ticket purchases, although visitors can still purchase tickets in advance online for speedy entry. Tickets purchased online will be valid for the date purchased only and can be used anytime starting at 9:30 am until and 3 pm when the entry gates close. Advance reservations and timed ticketing for everyone, including Zoo members, may be used in the future during high traffic times or events like spring break, or the popular annual event, ZooBoo.

The Zoo will be permanently altering its hours to 9:30 am to 4 pm daily, only closing on Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day.

More information regarding amenities, membership, upcoming events or to purchase tickets can be found at Please note, February admission discount does not apply to single ticket purchases, special events and education programs. Visit the website for current admission pricing.
