Greet over 300 animals at Elmvale Jungle Zoo, a family-friendly venue covering a vast area of 10 hectares (25 acres). Starting out in 1967, the zoo has grown from its initial size of only 0.8 hectares (2 acres), when it displayed mainly reptiles and avian species. Today, you have the chance to observe pink flamingos, zebras, lions, giraffes, monkeys, and plenty more living in safe and hygienic conditions. The zoo also doubles up as a petting station, where younger visitors can revel in stroking and feeding a range of farm animals. The zoo's stroller-friendly trails make visits with little ones a breeze. Arrange to visit Elmvale Jungle Zoo and other attractions in Elmvale using our Elmvale trip itinerary maker.

This is by far my favourite zoo. You get a great level of interaction with the animals, they seem much more "happy" than at some other larger zoos. Feeding the giraffes is always a hit. Tickets and me... more »
This zoo may be small but it is mighty. Perfect size for young children and those wanting to really get close to the animals. Here you are encouraged to feed the animals (with proper purchased feed). ... more »
I would strongly recommend this over the Toronto Zoo if you are relatively close. Less walking, shaded, and a great variety of animals. Only problem is the flies. There are a lot of them, and the wors... more »
Small zoo, but intimate. The animals interact more with you, you can get a bit closer than you would at the Toronto zoo, and the animals seem more active as well. Good place to take younger kids as it is a lot smaller (less walking). There are fewer animals but it is reasonably priced and a nice place to visit.
My family LOVES this place. It's fun for toddlers to adults. Great variety of animals and plenty of opportunity for interaction. We really enjoy the giraffes and miniature goats. Helpful staff, free parking, playground equipment for children to enjoy, picnic tables to enjoy a picnic (you can bring a lunch or buy snacks at the on-site canteen). An awesome way to spend a summer afternoon.
It honestly broke my heart coming here all the animals looked very distressed. The monkeys were pacing back and forth without stopping which is not a good sign. I asked an employee if the money's are ever let out of the cage and she said no that they spend their entire lives in those little cages. The Parrot looked very depressed and was plucking out his own feathers. My favourite part was seeing the goats and pigs because you got to pet them and love them but all the exotic animals who don't belong in Canada were very depressed and poorly taken care of
Not a bad little zoo. Wasn't as expensive as others I've been to. There are lots of shaded areas to walk through while moving through the exhibits.
Great place for children and adults and school trips. Very Clean! Large selection of animals. Outdoor covered eating area. Food and gift shops. Great coffee!
