What is there to do?

You don't have to travel all around the world to experience the many species that we have on this planet. You just have to go to Phoenix Zoo!

This family friendly zoo in Arizona has around 1,400 animals, all ready and waiting for you to go and say hello to them! From fish, birds, reptiles, invertebrates, and of course mammals. It's a place where kids can enter a world of discovery, curiosity and imagination.

Did you know that Phoenix Zoo has been giving families amazing day out enjoyment for over 50 years? That's a lot of happy families! Each visit, you will always find animals that you had wanted to see, or new species that you never knew existed, and even species that surprised you!

Those little ones can also encounter 30 species which are engangered or threatened, so they can really begin to understand about conservation, and preserving our planet for future generations.

You can spend the day admiring the awe-inspiring Asian elephants, or get face to face with the great Sumatran tiger. Don't forget to look up, otherwise you might miss the towering giraffes that roam the Savanna!

Phoenix Zoo is more than just looking at animals. You can also enjoy attractions and experiences such as Stingray Bay, or riding the Safari Train. You can even get up close to those beautiful tall creatures during the Giraffe Encounter.

We're not done there! Phoenix Zoo also has 2.5 miles of walking trails. The zoo has divided into four different trails, each of them taking about an hour or 30 minutes. One of the 30 minutes trail is a Children's Trail - so there really is something for everyone!

Animals, lush gardens, shops, cafes, exciting's all at Phoenix Zoo, so let's go!
