Reindeer Romp: Now is the perfect time to visit the L.A. Zoo with tons of holiday activities. Reindeer Romp is a rare chance to visit reindeer in their “Reindeer Village” habitat with reindeer facts and holiday photo ops daily. Weekend activities include make-your-own antler crafts, reindeer keeper talks at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. and a rotating schedule of animals unwrapping “gifts” of their own. Visits with Santa Claus in a whimsical North Pole setting (for a nominal fee) take place on weekend days, Nov. 18 through Dec. 17, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a variety of photo packages available.
All Reindeer Romp activities, except Santa photos, are free with paid zoo admission. Also included with paid Zoo admission are daily close-up “Animals & You” encounters, shows, talks and guided experiences, training demonstrations and more.
