Exhibits and activities

Africa Rocks: Visit a boulder with a view of the rocky world of Africa's kopje and savanna animals, from rock-hopping klipspringers to meerkat colonies to rooting warthogs. It also features cats big and small and the Hunte Amphitheater's 2 amazing free-flight bird shows.

Asian Passage: Spreading branches of palms and ficus trees mix with towering bamboo and fragrant ginger to create a paradise for treasured species like Bornean sun bears, lion-tailed macaques, binturongs, silver-leaf langurs, fruit doves, rhinoceros hornbills, and porcupines.

Discovery Outpost: Experience up-close, hands-on animal viewing for kids of all ages, featuring the Children's Zoo, Insect House, Reptile House, and Sea Lion Show. Enter an interactive world of discovery!

Northern Frontier: Take an expedition to the top of the world to see the rulers of the tundra: the mighty polar bears. Along the way, say hello to their northern neighbors, the reindeer and Arctic diving ducks.

Outback: Be “Waltzing Matilda” on this trek Down Under to see wallabies, wombats, tree kangaroos, and the largest colony of koalas outside of Australia.

Panda Canyon: They are black and white and loved all over! Meet the giant pandas, visit the discovery center, and learn about protecting pandas through the zoo’s research studies.

Urban Jungle: Come to a place where the urban world of humans meets the wild world of animals—are the animals living in our backyards or are we living in theirs? Around the world, humans and animals cross paths. Have your own encounters in this interactive zone!


Camp Critters: Wegeforth Bowl has been transformed into an imaginary summer camp. Birds, sea lions, four-legged critters, domestic animals, top predators, and humans gather here for songs and surprises. Meet a new critter and be part of the fun at the Camp Critters show! (Discovery Outpost)
