The Sacramento Zoo is a smaller scale zoo with big attractions.
Their animals have wonderful exhibits that are always a joy to see. Created to be as natural as their wildlife ancestors, the Sacramento Zoo takes pride in making their environment feel like home for their animal residents. Get lost in the tropical rainforest with the jaguars or discover the savannah with the giraffes. While you're hanging with giraffes feel free to pick up a branch and watch those long purple tongues eat right out of your hand.
The fun doesn't stop at watching the tigers play or hearing the wolves sing. There are an array of rides and playgrounds for the kids to exhaust themselves on, including a real life elephant ride! The food court has an option to please everyone’s taste buds. After eating your fill head over to the shark aquarium or take a ride on the train. Make sure you check out the many shows that provide an opportunity to see your favorite animals up close and personal while learning all about their habitat and lifestyle. The veterinary and nursery centers have viewing windows for educational opportunities. And who doesn't love seeing baby animals! So many fun activities packed into a central location in the state capitol of California.
Stop by the zoo store and pick out a souvenir to remember your fun filled visit to the Sacramento Zoo. Whether you prefer snow leopards, anteaters, or red pandas the souvenir shop has something you will love. While in the area don't miss out on the fun you can have at Fairytale Land across the street from the zoo.
