What is there to do?

At nearly 100 years old, Sacramento Zoo has been giving families just like yours amazing animal adventures and experiences. That's what your family day out is all about, after all!

Sacramento Zoo has been open since 1927, and is home to over 500 native, endangered and rare creatures from all around the world. It's an amazing opportunity for kids the experience wildlife, and geography, have fun, AND learn.

From mammals, to birds, amphibians and reptiles, there is plenty to get up close to at this family zoo attraction.

Have you ever looked into the bright eyes of the Mongoose Lemur, or taken a selfie with a White-Faced Saki?

You can experience the vast plains of Africa with the lions, tigers, jaguars, and zebras, to name a few. You might even come across some you haven't heard of before, such as the Green Acouchi and Southern Tamandua!

Kids, any ideas what kind of creature a Tamandua is? Better visit to find out!

There are creepy crawlies galore, including scorpions, tarantulas, caimans and snakes, and don't forget to check out the pretty cool creatures that reside below the water too!

You'll be amazing at what some of them look like. Nature is pretty incredible!

Keep an eye out for all of the information sheets next to each species. It's the best learning experience!

Have a ROAR-ing time!
