Since 1962, the Phoenix Zoo has inspired and motivated guests from all over to care for the natural world. Nestled on 125 acres within beautiful Papago Park, the Zoo is a one-of-a-kind place for adventure, discovery and lots of fun. Featuring over 3,000 animals, including Bornean orangutans, Asian elephants, Sumatran tigers, Komodo dragons, Masai giraffes and many more — it is like no other attraction in the Valley! With outdoor cafés, shops, lush gardens, water landscapes and exciting up-close animal encounters like Stingray Bay and Camel Rides, your visit will be memorable for the entire family. Other not to be missed activities include the Safari Cruiser and the Endangered Species Carousel. As a non-profit, the Zoo relies solely on admissions, memberships, donations and sponsorships to continue conservation initiatives, educational programs and the care of our animals. So join us today and help support this unforgettable Valley gem! For more information, visit phoenixzoo.org.
