Roar With Lions From 5 Feet Away! Take a Tour of our Zoological Park!

Visit over 20 species of animals wildly up close

On a tour of our zoological park, you’ll walk the three-quarter-mile path with a highly-trained guide and gain an understanding of each species’ ecological importance. You’ll also get to know each animal’s individual personality and story. We’re about reconnecting you to wildlife—so every tour is a conversation.
