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.

  • We visited the zoo Aug 9/17 with our 2 year old daughter. We got there at about 945 (it opens at 930) and didn't have to wait more than 2 minutes to get in (we hurried in the parking lot so we didn't ...  more »

  • Took our grand children and we were surprised at the amzing variety of exotic animals, many in natural surroundings, with lots of space to move. The monkeys were a high light but amazed to see young a...  more »

  • Enjoyed the place! The walk place is designed so you can easily see all the animals within 2-3 hrs without rushing. Bring Apples and Bananas since lots of animals enjoy them. Only downside is that it pales in comparison to the Toronto Zoo, but the prices are a lot better. Oh, if you want to enjoy a dance, see the cockatoo near the food stand, trust me you'll know what I mean when you see it. Lol.
  • Honestly we had a great time here, reasonably priced...and lots of lemurs. My only concern/complaint is the state of the ostrich enclosure, it was a freaking mud pit and the poor thing could hardly get around...there was pretty much NO dry area for her to sit...she just stood in the corner up to her ankles and soaking wet. Surely something could be done to help this bird.
  • Definitely not a bad zoo at all. Weird that there is absolutely no air conditioned place at the park whatsoever. Especially on a day like today, where it is the hottest day of the year so far feeling like 35° with the humidity lol..
  • Fantastic little zoo. At least you can actually see the animals and feed/pet some of them as well. Have been getting a season pass since my son was born. Convenient location so I can just drop in for a quick 30 minute walk to see the animals. The young lemurs will come right out of their enclosure and eat banana right out of your hands. My son thought was the greatest thing ever.
  • We had a good time here. It was nice to able to feed the animals. We were to get pretty close to a lot of them.
