Learn photography at Auckland Zoo

Ever since I was a kid I’ve loved taking photos. I would set up the picnic table in the middle of the paddock and pretend to be a magazine photographer! Misty Hastings sun rises, gum trees silhouetted against the summer sky and lichen on fence posts; my mother was forced to hang them all on the wall…

So I would have LOVED what Auckland Zoo offers: photography workshops for 10-14 year oldsand they’ve given me a double pass to give away!

I took friend’s children a couple of years ago and here are some of the photos we took:

Auckland giraffe Zabulu

My little charge James feeds a carrot to Zabulu. Check out the tongue!

Auckland zoo rhinoceros

Fortunately this rhino turned around and stopped his spraying for this pic.

Auckland Zoo baboon baby

We fell in love with this week-old baboon whose mother kept him close by dragging him around by the tail. He’s very active!

Auckland Zoo baboons

This baboon kid gets to pick the nits out of his mother’s back. Mmmmm.

Auckland Zoo meercats

And so does the meerkat but he’s on the look out. And yes, the meerkat domes for kids to peek through are still here!

Auckland zoo monkeys

One of the 16 spider monkeys that leap through the trees in the Rainforest. With very little fencing I don’t know how they don’t jump out!

Auckland Zoo tuatara

Tipua was bred here to join the educational program.

We spent 5 hours here, had lunch in one of the cafes and ran out of stamina to see it all. If I were you, I’d plan to spend the whole day at Auckland Zoo!
