This year, we’re teaming up with the Friends of the National Zoo to help you save the panda-monium for Bao Bao and keep your ride worry free. From July’s Brew at the Zoo to October’s frightfully fun Night at the Living Zooyou can now arrive like king or queen of the jungle to all of the Zoo’s wildest events.

To kick things off, we’re giving away a FREE 1.5-hour tour with an expert zoo guide for you and up to 9 pals!



Here’s how it works:

  • Enter the promo code FONZ by logging into your account here or in the app. You only need to enter the code one time and will see a confirmation screen when entered correctly.

Make a Difference

As one of the few free zoos in the country, the National Zoo relies on the generosity of the community, its members, and its millions of annual visitors to support its conservation and education efforts. Consider making a donation to FONZ. A little goes an Uber-long way.
