They have many animals from south America. You can get very close to the animals, is better to go early on the morning when less people there.

Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised. It is a Zoo with about 1200 animals spread out in a 25 acre area. It was a great afternoon to spend with family especially with children. It was not on the par of the San Diego Zoo but offered the family enough variety that it was a very pleasant experience. I would... More

I am not a big zoo fan as I just hating seeing the animals in small enclosures, but this is not too bad for a zoo. The price was very affordable as well and my daughter and I saw it in a few hours.

Loved this zoo. Most of the animals are from South America but they feature a different country each month. This month was Australia so we got to see kangaroos. The best part is that the animals are very close so it is excellent for picture taking. Try to buy the plan with tickets, icecream, soda and hoy dog, it is... More

You can see closer to the animals than where you have been to any zoo in United States or even in another location. You can see all beautiful animals and they're most activities not being lazy or sleeping on the ground. Take a good pictures too!

It's a great zoo. It is very busy so i would recommend going in the morning when it opens at 9am. Plus when it gets hot in the afternoon the animals are not as playful between 12-2pm. It's a great way to spend a morning

Zoo was well designed, clean and reasonably priced. We spent a wonderful 2 or 3 hours and had a great lunch! Great way to spend the morning in Cali.

Very interesting animals, very nice settings, friendly people and always making improvements. I love the river passing through, the iguanas and guinea hens roaming free and the kids from the local schools having a great time. ENJOY !

I went to the Cali Zoo and it was so nice because it seemed as though the animals were in there natural habitats. I am so used to seeing the animals behind closed areas where you can only see them behind a glass but this zoo was not like that at all. The peacocks were walking around with the visitors.... More
