Connect with your world like never before! The San Antonio Zoo’s beautifully landscaped campus is home to thousands of animals from around the globe. It’s a “Big as Texas” mixture of world conservation, wildlife education and family fun. Take part in one of the interactive exhibits like feeding a giraffe or ride the “wildest” carousel you’ve ever seen.
Snack on cold treats or hot meals and make sure you don’t miss the aquarium, terrarium and largest collection of birds in the world.
The best part of your experience at the San Antonio Zoo is that you will learn how to help make the world a better place for all.
Africa Live - Hippos, crocodiles, and African cichlids from Lake Tanganyika and Lake Malawi are visible through underwater viewing windows that allow guests to see these creatures in the environment where they spend much of their lives.
African Plains - At this exhibit, look for ostriches, Grevy's zebra, African crowned cranes, Topi, Marabou storks, and sometimes other antelopes.
Amazonia - Animals housed in the Amazonia exhibit include large and small cats, such as the jaguar and the ocelot. Cotton-topped tamarins, marmosets, capuchins, white-faced saki monkeys, armadillos, bats, fish, and birds such as macaws and the giant Andean condor also reside in this area of the zoo.
Cranes Of The World - The exhibit is a lush environment constructed on the Zoo's existing waterway that allows guests to be immersed in the cranes' habitat - an opportunity that is becoming increasingly rare in the wild.
Hixon Bird House - Here you will encounter birds from all parts of the world, from the deserts of the American southwest (roadrunner, burrowing owl), coastal beaches (black-necked stilt, Inca tern), South American rain forest (quetzal, tinamou, sun bittern), the jungles of Asia (lesser green broadbill, fairy bluebird), to the African bush (Taveta golden weaver, Egyptian plover, jacana), and many others
Zootennial Carousel - This dazzling carousel features four Texas favorites—the endangered whooping crane, the white-tailed deer, the Texas horned lizard, and even the jackalope. Each animal on the carousel is unique and the Texas natives are joined by a menagerie of real and imaginary animals like the white ostrich, a seadragon, the hummingbird, a tiger shark, and a polar bear.
