Honolulu Zoo

The sun is setting. Tiki torches light the way as you stroll along beautiful, revitalized Kalakaua Avenue and Waikiki Beach. You enter the Honolulu Zoo, with its lush vegetation and 100-year-old rare trees. Located at the base of Diamond Head, this 42-acre site is a unique setting for nocturnal animal tours. The Honolulu Zoo is within walking distance from all Waikiki Hotels. Whether for 100 or 10,000 guests, every corporate gathering in Hawaii should culminate with an outdoor event.
