Interested in photographing the zoo after-hours? Join a zoo horticulturist and an animal expert on a leisurely stroll through the zoo at twilight. Your guides will point out the interesting behavior of animals like the puma and red wolves at this unique time of day as well as seasonal highlights in the zoo gardens.

*** Important Note - You must pay the Lincoln Park Zoo for this tour. Make your reservation at the above link. The non-member price is $13. ***
To get transit directions to the zoo, visit transitchicago.com, there are buses that stop right at the zoo entrance. Parking may be available on Stockton Drive, but it is usually hard to find a spot. There is always the zoo lot, but that is pricy, I think about $18.
