Celebrate the season and watch the animals enjoy their presents during this year’s Holidays with the Animals on Saturday, Dec. 16! Staff and volunteers have wrapped gifts, created enrichment, and gathered all the animals’ favorite treats for this special event. Come to the Honolulu Zoo and join us as the animals dive in, demolish, and devour their holiday gifts and treats.

Gift distributions will begin shortly after the gates open at 10 a.m. and will occur every 15 minutes until 2:00 p.m. throughout the Zoo. Kids and adults alike will be thrilled to see our Sumatran tiger, black rhino, elephants, chimpanzees, sloths, and more enjoying their holiday enrichment.

Keiki can take photos with Santa and participate in crafts from 12 p.m. to 2 p.m. at Hale Imi ‘Ike.

The event is included with admission to the Honolulu Zoo.
