Bring the entire family to the Tulsa Zoo and experience the wonders of wildlife through animal encounters on 84 lush acres. The animal exhibits offer an exciting journey into the natural world with must-see exhibits including Lost Kingdom, the Mary K. Chapman Rhino Reserve, the Rainforest, Chimpanzee Connection and the Helmerich Sea Lion Cove.

Exhibit Overview:

Tour the Robert J. LaFortune WildLIFE Trek, a journey through animal life in the cold, desert, forest and water. Guests will find features old and new, from an interactive area and training wall, to the zoo's original cave exhibit. This four-building complex will thrill all who take a trek through the wild.

The African Plains is home to the Mary K. Chapman Rhino Reserve, a re-creation of a mixed species African grassland habitat designed to inspire conservation action on behalf of rhinos. The 2-acre outdoor exhibit space is home to white rhinos, nyala and springbok antelope, warthogs and African crowned cranes. A replica rhino moving crate, climbable rhino statues, sustainable building design and interpretive graphics are designed to educate and immerse zoo guests. The African Plains is also home to giraffes, lions, African painted dogs, and meerkats.

The Rainforest features translucent canopy panels, lush vegetation and pre-Colombian ruins, which serve as a habitat for the resident jaguars. View exotic species such as black howler monkeys, anacondas, sloths, dwarf caimans and a variety of bird species, which fly freely throughout the interactive exhibit.

Browse through the Dave Zucconi Conservation Center to view a range of species, from birds and primates, to reptiles and fish. Learn about the Tulsa Zoo's wildlife conservation programs around the world, and then head to the reptile nursery to witness their newest contributions to saving reptile species.

Helmerich Sea Lion Cove offers a view of sea lions from different vantage points, including from an underwater viewing station. With a beach theme, the complex rocky landscape provides enrichment for sea lions with caves, flat rocks and shady spots. A highlight of the exhibit is the demonstration area, where people can gather for daily keeper presentations about the conservation and care of sea lions.

Take the kids to the petting zoo featuring small and friendly farm animals. Witness the daily routines of animals such as guinea hogs, river otters, kangaroos, and more. Other education areas include an Oklahoma trail, a sensory garden, and the COX Nature Exchange.

Learn about your favorite animals from the keepers who care for them each day. Daily keeper chat and demonstration schedules are available on the zoo's website. 

Dining Options: Macaw Landing Grille is a full-service restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. Visit the Lost Kingdom for an upscale pizza restaurant at George Kaiser Family Foundation Rajan’s, allowing guests to dine up close with the tigers, and an outdoor snack shop, which replaces the former Trunk Stop Café. The Ann and Jack Graves Komodo Canteen offers two shaded seating areas where guests can relax with a sweet or salty treat, and enjoy fantastic views of the wildlife around them. Other seasonal options are available around zoo grounds.
