Self-Guided Field Trips Reservations Policies 

  • Please make field trip reservations at least two weeks prior to your visit date.
  • Student safety is important to us at the Honolulu Zoo, and for that reason we require a minimum ratio of one adult per 10 students regardless of age group. We also require shoes to be worn at all times while on Zoo grounds.
  • Keiki Zoo (Petting Zoo) times are on a first come, first reserved basis and are limited to groups of no more than 25 individuals for each 30 minute time slot.  Time slots start every 15 minutes.  PLEASE NOTE: Keiki Zoo times are subject to change or cancellation without prior notice due to staffing and/or animal emergencies.
  • We DO NOT have facilities for storing lunches. We suggest placing lunches in a box/cooler and storing them on one of our picnic tables accompanied by one of your chaperones, renting double strollers ($7 each) from our gift shop to transport the lunches, bringing in wagons to pull lunches, or have the students carry their lunches with them.
  • After making your reservation be sure to download the appropriate confirmation packet before exiting the screen. Packets are to be filled out by the group leader and can be used as an invoice. A completed packet is required for Zoo Entry on the day of your visit.
