Visit the wildlife oasis and see and interact with animals from the four corners of the world at Sacramento Zoo. From red pandas to penguins, the modest-sized zoo is home to a variety of animals, all living in spacious habitats. The zoo layout caters to its youngest visitors, allowing kids to go easily from one habitat to the other and ensuring children in strollers have a good view of the animals. For a small fee you can take part in giraffe feeding, which takes place twice a day and is one of the zoo's main attractions. If you get tired of walking you can hop on a train, or take a break by having a snack or visiting the gift shop. To plan Sacramento vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
Sacramento Zoo Reviews
I had not been to the Sac Zoo in some time. I brought the grandchildren here and it did not disappoint. The male Lion put on a show , just amazing. more »
We have a membership to the zoo, and we do not even have kids. Nestled right near William Land Park in Sacramento, you are able to get up close and personal with giraffes, lions, gibbons, meerkats... more »
Wonderful visit. Not crowded. Great weather. So clean, and staff were totally fine with my random questions.Food was okay, priced high as expected. Food staff not engaged, but, it took awhile for us to receive our meal. Overall it was a good day.
Great family zoo! Never too crowded, kids love it, small but always fun. Feeding the giraffes is always a hit. And free parking! Definitely worth an annual pass of you live nearby.
