What is there to do?

The Alexandria Zoo was founded in 1926, so imagine how many family memories it's created in all those years! And now YOU can be part of the history!

Set across 33 shady acres, Alexandria Zoo is home to more than 600 animals and features a number of exhibits that you can explore, and see some pretty amazing animals face to face. 

The Land of the Jaguar is SO much more than jaguars! Set on 2 and a half acres, this exhibits showcases the magnificent animals, architecture AND culture of Latin America.

Inside there are over 40 species of mammals, reptiles and birds, all living in impressive Mayan ruins. See the monkeys play, and the colorful birds take flight! Try and spot the giant anteater too!

Keeping it close to home, the Louisiana Habitat covers around 3 and a half acres and features fauna, flora and architecture of the state. Here, species such as bobcats, alligators, raccoons, red wolves and white-tailed deer roam free.

Check out the underwater viewing areas too!

Over to Asia next where large viewing glass windows put you nose to nose with felines such as tigers and the clouded leopard. The rare Malayan tiger and Siamang apes can also be seen in this area!

The rare and endangered anoa also calls this exhibit home, giving kids an invaluable education on conservation at the same time. 

The African Experience takes you to those impressive plains of African, and the Australian Walkabout goes Down Under with the wallaby, emu and kookaburras, just to name a few. 

With Keeper Chats for more educational experiences, and year round events that you won't want to miss, it's time to get WILD in Louisiana because the Alexandria Zoo is calling!
