About this activity

Did you know that Memphis Zoo was created all the way back in 1906? Imagine all the family fun that has been had since then....and now it's YOUR turn to be part of it!

Memphis Zoo is home to over 4,500 creatures. These represent over 500 species from all across the world, so there is a LOT to be experienced, explored, and importantly - learned!

If you just love animals, then Memphis Zoo is your kind of place!

You can take a journey to Cat County, where African Lions, cougars, red pandas and tigers all await you to come face to face with them! Penguin Rock is where you will find those cheek little penguins,  and creatures of the water all join together to give you an amazing experience. We don't mean fish either - we mean hippos, Nile crocodile, flamingos, and even Okapi.

If you don't know what they are, kids, then all the more reason to visit so you can find out!

Those scaly creatures are represented too, with the American Alligator, dart frog, turtles and python. There are some pretty weird and wonderful creatures on our planet!

Memphis Zoo even have a sweet domestic farm where you can get close to ducks, donkeys, horses and chickens. 

Don't forget about the daily events that Memphis Zoo hold! These are great for kids to learn that little bit more about the animals, and ask questions. There are "Wild Encounters", panda keeper chats, sea lion shows, giraffe feeding, and even polar bear chats.

There are also special events, such as fundraisers, members nights and celebrations for harvest, so keep an eye out - you won't want to miss out!

Animal fun all around at Memphis Zoo! You'll have a ROARing time!
