Every time we go to the zoo someone at the from offers to take our picture. They have a fancy camera and ask nicely, but I usually say no thank you and we keep walking. This time, I decided to ask for more information. Did you know that San Antonio Zoo offers a photo package that gets you digital copies of every photo from the day? It’s called the giraffe package. And I love it!!
I am a member of San Antonio zoo’s zootroop. But I paid for this photo package 100% myself and it was worth every penny.
Sometimes there is someone standing out front near the Zoo sign before you come in. We didn’t see that person this time, but it would be included too if we had.
Walk a little further and you will get this pic. If you find out you had your eyes closed, like me, they will retake it for you. No extra charge to try again.
Of course you’re going to want to stop and see the baby hippo. He was being so cute on this day, for a little guy he sure has a big mouth.
Head up the ramp and past the Nile Crocodile and you will see a green screen set up. This is a fun interactive photo op. The kids will have a lot of fun with all the options.
I love how these pics turned out. They actually only took the first three photos, but we asked them to do that last pic when we saw the display photo on the desk. This is where we bought our photo package. It cost $45 plus tax. It comes with a digital copy of every photo you take, a cute frame, and a 6×8 printout of your favorite pic. If you decide you want to print more than one pic, it’s only $5.00 extra.
The staff told us that pics at the giraffe feeding were included too, so we headed that way next.
For $7 they will give you 3 big lettuce leaves. The whole family can head into the feeding area and get up close to the giraffes. The leaves can not be torn, you will go up one at a time and the professionals will offer to take your photo. Feeding times vary and are posted nearby. These are our giraffe feeding photos.
The hippo and zoo area gave me paper receipts with codes on them to download my photos. The individual photographers gave me little cards that said San Antonio Zoo on them. I recommend taking pics of each as you get them.
If you lose them, there is no way to get them back. This is the second receipt. The first one showed my total and how I paid.
So next time you’re at the zoo, consider the photo package as a fun souvenir for the whole family. If you know someone who has a zoo membership this would make a great gift.
Hope you enjoy your next trip to San Antonio Zoo! Happy New Year!!
