Something WILD is headed your way in Santa Barbara, and that might be a day filled with animal fun at Santa Barbara Zoo!
With 30 acres and over 500 animals representing 146 species, so it certainly will be a day of animals interactions, learning, and creating amazing memories!
An average Zoo visit lasts 2 1/2 hours, but many families spend a half day meandering the grounds, taking in the Pacific Ocean views, and enjoying a picnic lunch or dinner after visiting the animals. It's YOUR day, so do what you like with it!
Santa Barbara Zoo offers naturalistic habitats for the animals to call home, so kids can witness them acting close to how they would in the wild.
From Africa, to Asia, and even Down Under, kids can meet animals from ALL over the world! There are the adorable river otters who love to play, and the impressive Asian elephants with their charming faces. Kids can marvel at how tall giraffes really are, and of course they can see those grand African lions with their own eyes.
Santa Barbara Zoo also houses rare and endangered species including the Amur Leopard, offering kids an invaluable learning experience all about conservation, and why it's so important for us to care for the animals on the planet, and their homes!
Don't miss the California Trails multi-exhibit complex including Condor Country, home of four juvenile California condors, Channel Island fox, Rattlesnake Canyon, home to endangered reptiles and amphibians, bald eagles, and desert tortoises.
As well as the animals, Santa Barbara Zoo also offers a number of fun attractions and experiences that you can enjoy for a small additional fee, including the giraffe feeding, barnyard visit, carousel ride, zoo trail and family play area!
