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.

Alex, according to the Oklahoma City Zoo's official website, there is an area where you can house your pet for a small fee while you visit. For more information, please call 405-424-3344. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

From Alex on 11/12/15

We would like to come to the city for the day, but would need to bring out dog. Are leashed dogs aloud to be brought into the zoo?

From TravelOK.com Staff on 08/24/15

Sara, for that information your best bet is to call the zoo at 405-424-3344, and they'll be happy to help you. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

From Sara on 08/24/15

How can my $30 gift card that is included in the Family Plus membership be used? And how much are the shows, feeding the stingrays and giraffes, etc? Is there a way to find out food prices too? Also if I name two adults can one be interchangeable with a different guess. This would be so my husband or I can bring both my parents and our kids if we can't both go. Thanks!

From TravelOK.com Staff on 05/13/15

Rhonda, for that information you will need to speak with to zoo directly by calling 405-424-3344. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!

Do you sell the plants...I would love some bamboo.

From Ruth on 04/03/15

The map left a lot to be desired. We kept going in circles trying to get to the elephant pavillian before the show started. It took us 40 minutes to find and get there. By that time we were 20 minutes late. Other people were also complaining of not being able to find specific things. We were there almost 1hr. Before seeing our first animals. The zoo was clean and attractive,however signs kept us wandering around. Good luck, we also asked directions several times. They would just point oh, it over there, but what trails lead that way would have helped a lot .

From Broderick's on 02/07/14

Lots of trees and space for people to walk and view the animals. Again another zoo with to little space for caged animals. The ant eater had a well defind walking path, he went around in circles, poor guy. The tigers were looking very tired of their small enclosures. I don't think we can ever provide a substitute for freedom. A caged animal is never more then that. My children enjoyed seeing the animals but learned a valuable lesson on how difficult it would be to live your life in a space the size of your bedroom.

From broderick family on 02/07/14

Yes the zoo did have nice walking path. Lots if trees and space for people to

From Jamie on 08/19/13

I think the zoo is beautiful but I felt like I wasted a lot of time walking to find the animals. But what's frustrating is that you have to pay for everything inside the zoo. I would rather pay a couple more $ then to pay for tram, sting rays, sea lion show separate, I only brought a certain amount of money because I didn't realize you had to pay for everything inside. Very disappointing for the kids.

From TravelOK.com Staff on 12/07/12

Jack, we did a little bit of research on the OKC Zoo's official website. You'll find season passes by clicking on the orange website button above, scrolling to the bottom and clicking membership. You'll find everything you need there. Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!

From Jack on 12/07/12

Love the zoo but your web sight sucks. I would like to purchase family season passes but can not find any place to do that. I have been through so many pages I am getting a headache. Why no place to purchase season passes?

From Katherine on 06/12/12

This zoo is not well laid out. You have to walk a lot in order to see any animals. We were all exhausted after seeing only a few exhibits. Many of the animals aren't visible. Don't waste your time and money.

From Seth on 07/29/11

The OKC Zoo is great! The kids zoo is really cool for little kids and there's even a baby elephant in the new elephant area. Can't wait to go back w/ my daughter.
