Who’s ready for an animal adventure? Are you? Great! Why don’t we explore Niabi Zoo in Illinois – after all, there are over 900 animals there. That’s pretty amazing!
Niabi Zoo is set on over 40 landscaped acres, and have around 160 species that make up the nearly 1000 animals that call the zoo home. The zoo is an incredible way for kids to have those unforgettable animals experiences, and also to, of course, learn all about them! What better way to learn than in a completely hands-on environment.
Throughout Niabi Zoo, there are a number of exhibit that house these creatures from ALL over the world! You don’t need to get on a plane to go to Africa with the Passport To Africa exhibit. Lions, zebras, ostrich, foxes, monkeys, and hyrax are all waiting to say hello on the Illinois savannah!
Don’t miss those giraffe feedings that occur twice a day – it’s quite an experience because YOU get to feed them!
It’s Down Under next with the Australian Walkabout. There are colorful Lorikeets that make an appearance on a seasonal basis where you can feed them the sweet nectar that they love.
Across the globe to Asia is where you’ll find pretty incredible creatures, such as the Buffed-Cheeked Gibbon. Have you ever heard them sing duets? Listen out for them!
With Jungle Treks, Wolf Ridges, reptiles, and aviary AND a petting zoo filled with sweet domestic animals that you can hand feed, as well as pony rides, Niabi Zoo really can give you some pretty incredible animal experiences to take away.
Did we mention there were amazing events like Breakfast with the Animals, Zookeeper Chats and Big Cat Encounters? No? Well – you better visit to see what they are all about!
Animal fun all around – not in Africa, or Asia, or Australia – but in Illinois!
