You’ll find rare and endangered species like manatees, white tigers, silverback gorillas, and more; and stories of rescues, babies, and habitat preservations, too.

From adults looking to expand their understanding of global ecological issues, to the smallest tot learning the name of the animals in the world she is exploring, there is a ton of fun learning to do at our very special zoo. Every exhibit space has information on the habitat, feeding, habits, and preferences of each species displayed, and even information on how humans impact the species as a whole.

Annual memberships are available for individuals and families, with packages that combine an annual zoo pass with a seasonal Zoombezi Bay pass.
