Visit the wildlife oasis and see and interact with animals from the four corners of the world at Sacramento Zoo. From red pandas to penguins, the modest-sized zoo is home to a variety of animals, all living in spacious habitats. The zoo layout caters to its youngest visitors, allowing kids to go easily from one habitat to the other and ensuring children in strollers have a good view of the animals. For a small fee you can take part in giraffe feeding, which takes place twice a day and is one of the zoo's main attractions. If you get tired of walking you can hop on a train, or take a break by having a snack or visiting the gift shop. Plan your visit to Sacramento Zoo and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Sacramento vacation trip planner.

  • Fun, clean, easy access, not too large. Food selection is a bit lacking as well as quantity of shows. Would like to see much more presentations from the staff.
  • Awesome zoo!! I love how secluded this place feels. Its not a typical zoo as its heavily shaded and wooded with trees and plants. Its sort of small but has all the major animals you would go to a zoo to experience. The prices are great and the exhibits are good for kids and adults.
  • I've been a member for three years now. Now, I know this isn't the world's greatest zoo, but I love the giraffes, the red river hogs, the hornbills, and especially the anteater. They have some evening programs in the summer too. It's something I'm really proud to have in our community.
  • A lovely little zoo. I've taken my first graders here on a field trip, and we all loved it! The animals are well cared for. There's a animal show most days. Picnic areas and playground too.
