Hippo Encounter

Nov 2, 2018 - Dec 31, 2018


We're so hippo to meet you!

Meet long time Denver zoo resident Mahali the hippo during this up close and personal experience. Participants will have exclusive access to the outdoor hippo habitat in our new encounter space, opportunities to learn from his keepers how they care for him, and help toss food to Mahali! Do you have what it takes to hit a four foot target from just a few feet away? Start practicing your aim! Please note that because of safety regulations, guests will not receive direct contact with the hippo, but rather will get a closer look than public perspective allows with exclusive access and interactions.
