The Zoo is geared towards all ages. See more than 100 species of animals including African elephants, Masai giraffe, cheetahs, a komodo dragon and more. We'd highly recommend stopping by our Big Backyard exhibit area which includes an outdoor splash pad, water garden and drip drop wall which is perfect for young ones. For something slightly out of the ordinary, visit our new Explore and Soar area offering an exhilarating zip ride, a train excursion through the woodlands, and camel rides.
