Welcome to the largest zoological experience in Texas! With 106 acres to explore and thousands of animals to see, the Dallas Zoo offers fun, educational and entertaining experiences for the whole family. The Zoo's mission is to inspire a passion for nature and conserve wildlife, and guests visiting the Zoo can see a number of endangered species and learn about a variety of conservation projects the Dallas Zoo supports. Opened in 2010, our award-winning Giants of the Savanna habitat is a must-see. The large savannas feature elephants, ostrich, zebras, impalas, giraffes, and guineafowl, often mingling together. The Dallas Zoo is home to a herd of five female elephants and 11 giraffes. There is also an elevated platform where guests can feed giraffes, the tallest land mammals in the world! Guests will also see the fastest land mammal on Earth, the cheetah, as well as four African lions who often spend their days sleeping just inches away from the large viewing window inside the Serengeti Grill restaurant. The Wilds of Africa area features rare animals such as gorillas, chimpanzees and okapi, and guests can take a 20- minute adventure on the elevated Monorail Safari ride. Guests will enjoy getting eye-to-eye with African penguins as they swim effortlessly underwater. Highlights of the ZooNorth section include the Lacerte Family Children's Zoo, a top-rated reptile and amphibian complex featuring albino alligators, as well as the Zoo's new Koala Walkabout exhibit, featuring koalas, red kangaroo, wallabies, and a lorikeet feeding area for up-close adventures. For alternative transportation to the Dallas Zoo, consider the DART Red Line, which delivers guests to the Zoo's front entrance. Less
