Adventure awaits you at the Oklahoma City Zoo & Botanical Garden.  Featuring 1,800 animals located on 120 beautiful acres, the zoo is Oklahoma's #1 attraction and the third most family-friendly zoo in the country. 

The Oklahoma City Zoo is renowned for outstanding exhibits that allow the resident animals to enjoy their natural habitats while also providing visitors with up-close vantage points to view all the action. Explore the palatial new elephant habitat home to Asian elephants; Rex, half sisters Asha and Chandra, Bamboo and Asha.

The Zoo's popular Cat Forest and Lion Overlook features a diverse collection of small and large cats. Indoor viewing stations are situated so that visitors can stand inside and watch tigers stalk and lions sun themselves, while outdoor trails through the exhibit offer additional opportunities to view cats.

The Great EscApe exhibit at the zoo is a highly regarded showcase for apes including gorillas, chimpanzees and orangutans.  Venture into the world of the great apes as you journey through a tropical rain forest and interpretive displays over the six-acre exhibit.

In addition to taking a train ride through the zoo, guests can also take a boat ride on the Safari Voyage. Climb about one of the two electric powered, 50-person boats and cruise Zoo Lake. Each educational ride lasts 15-20 minutes and will include fun facts about the zoo, upcoming events and the boat, which is built to resemble the famous African Queen.

For a totally native, totally wild experience, be sure to visit the Oklahoma Trails exhibit, which features eight acres of adventure showcasing more than 800 animals native to the state. The Oklahoma City Zoo & Botanical Garden is fully accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums and the American Association of Museums.

For one of the zoo’s most interactive exhibits, don’t miss the opportunity to touch and occasionally feed some majestic underwater creatures at Stingray Bay. Located near the Canopy Food Court, you’ll see cownose stingrays, southern stingrays, bonnethead sharks and white-spotted bamboo sharks in this 16,000 gallon pool. Stingray Bay is open March 1-October 31. The cost to enter is $3 per person.

Be sure to let the kids play in the Children's Zoo. Kids of all ages can explore, touch and immerse themselves in a natural environment that will stimulate their imagination, encourage exploration and give them a greater appreciation for nature. Exhibit highlights include an interactive "touch" area with barnyard animals and a waterway area complete with a waterfall, flamingos and a koi pond. Plus, the ever-popular lorikeets, spider and squirrel monkeys are always on display. Come on, the fun is calling.
