Rhino Rendezvous 1 Hour
Participants of the Rhino Rendezvouz will spend an hour with our keepers and learn about the care and enrichment the rhinos receive at Brookfield Zoo. Participants will be able to feed the rhinos, possibly help scratch/massage them through a protected barrier and help feed a pygmy hippo or tapir.

Bring a Buddy!

Cost is $200 ($250 for nonmembers) and space is tight so we close the program after one person signs up. We can accommodate up to three people, though, so when you book your session, you can choose to bring a second participant (and even a third participant) at a discounted rate ($100 off). That's just $100 for members, and $150 for nonmembers!

Get started by following these five easy steps:
  1. Review the fact sheet to prepare for your adventure.
  2. Choose a date range to see when an exclusive program is available.
  3. Complete the online registration forms.
  4. Print your confirmation page and map.
  5. Print and complete your program waiver form.

NEW UPGRADEABLE OPTION!

Want the ultimate experience with our rhinos and see their artistic side? Spend 2 hours being escorted around to zoo on a private golf cart, stopping at any exhibits you wish. Then meet and spend time with our pachyderm keepers where you will not only feed the rhinos but take part in a rhino painting enrichment session. The entire experience is photographed and the painting is yours to keep too!

This is appropriate for animal lovers and zoo fans from age 10 to adult. Participants under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or adult guardian. The cost is a $1,500.00 Bison Circle membership donation, which allows up to five (5) people to participate.
