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.

  • 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...  read more »

  • Had a great day.... very easy to get around... loved the giraffes!! Lots of animals to view and feed.... the fries were delicious 
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • It was pretty sad walking through. The jaguar, Lions and tigers are in small cages, no place to run, the giraffes and zebras are out in the fields, no watering holes or shade. No trees for the giraffes to graze on. The only water access these animals have is a small bowl attached to the fence, which was broken in the Lions den so the cats had no water. Animals were walking through their own feces, it looked as if it hasn't been cleaned in days. Grounds keep staff all loomed around and not very friendly. Only one bathroom throughout the whole park (not very convenien) it also smelled and was dirty. Half the lights weren't working. For a fee of $37 for 2 adults, do yourself a favor and save your money. - a heartbroken and disappointed citizen
  • Great place to take the little ones for the day. Prices are reasonable for entry and for lunch. Kids can go back to school saying they fed a giraffe!
  • Our little man loves the Elmvale Zoo - great to show the kids all the animals in real life that they see in their books :) Excellent day trip! 5 STARS!
