with Pets & Exotic Animals!


Birthday Parties for Animal-Mad Children & Teenagers from just $250

+ In-School Workshops & Events





The perfect option for your older children and teens

For animal lovers, our parties are fantastic fun and provide a stress-free and unique option for memorable birthdays. Animal Parties are loved by boys, girls, teenagers and even adults! Parties are educational and fun, and always reinforce the importance of kindness and respect towards animals.


A ZooVenture party is most suitable for children from 8 years through to teens and beyond. The only requirement is a love of animals. We provide an age-appropriate experience with lots of fun and interaction, without guests feeling like they're at a 'little kids' party.


Have the party at your place, with amazing pets and exotic animals or come to our awesome Stanmore Bay venue (10 minutes from Silverdale offramp) where ALL the pets live. From feeding bearded dragons and holding baby tortoises to creating animal habitats, grooming long haired guinea pigs, meeting giant stick insects and lots more animal adventures, party guests are guaranteed a great time and will learn lots too!


We have popular 'fluffy' pets such as mice, guinea pigs, chinchillas, rats and rabbits, through to leopard geckos, bearded dragons, blue tongue lizards, water dragons, tortoises, turtles, birds, and amphibians, as well as our performing pups, Margo and Badger. There is even some creepy crawlies!


Animal Parties are hands-on fun and learning which allow guests to interact with the animals in a safe supervised environment. Our party hosts are enthusiastic and knowledgeable and will make your birthday celebration or event a special day to remember.


We are available to come to you throughout the Hibiscus Coast and North Shore.

An additional travel charge applies for central Auckland suburbs.

Our venue is at Karepiro Drive, Stanmore Bay - 10 minutes from the Silverdale offramp. Venue visits by appointment only. Please contact us for address details.

1 hour $250, 1.5 hours $310

For the animal lover in your family, give the gift of over a hundred animals..for an hour anyway!

A 'ZooVenture' is held at our Stanmore Bay venue and is valid for 1-5 people, school age through to adults. The recipient can bring friends, family, or just come by themselves. The experience is tailored to the recipient's particular interests, which may be a bit of everything, or perhaps lizards, turtles and other reptiles, caring for a particular type of pet, or just some time with the chinchillas, bunnies and all the other fluffy stuff!


All experiences are interactive, hands-on and fun. Just $125 and valid throughout school holidays as space allows or after school (party prices apply for 6+ people). Contact us for more information or to have your personalised ZooVenture certificate sent to you.



Teachers love our curriculum relevant workshops, available at all levels. From animal diversity and classification through to animal career STAR courses and practical pet care workshops, this is a great option for schools wanting an interactive animal experience without having to travel. For providers of holiday programs, we bring the zoo to you. We are also available to attend community events, shopping centres and store fun days.

For the welfare of our animals, we require party guests to follow basic instructions around the animals and remain reasonably CALM. This type of party is great fun for most children but will not suit those who have trouble sitting quietly for any length of time. Parents must advise us of any known behavioral conditions of guests. We may ask a caregiver to sit with any children that could potentially be disruptive or harm animals. Our parties are a unique and special experience for children because of their hands-on nature. We take the care and safety of our animals very seriously and will not allow rough handling.
