Keep in mind, at Wildlife Images the animals always come first. We will do whatever we can to make sure your Weekend Encounter is a wonderful and memorable experience. However, we do prioritize the animals comfort and safety as well as the safety of our guests and staff. Because of this, specific opportunities and animal selection are at the discretion of Animal Care. Wild Weekend Encounters are considered public. We do offer private opportunities by reservation.
