Visitors to the Los Angeles Zoo can drop in on their animal favorites while exploring the beauty of the facility's botanical gardens. From bush babies and babirusas to mandrills and mangabeys, this California zoo is teeming with exotic creatures, endangered species, scaly reptiles and creepy invertebrates.
The zoo is open 364 days a year (closed December 25), and visitors can check out the expansive exhibits, attend the World of Birds show, participate in Adventure Theater or have a close-up creature encounter. Find out more about the zoo's efforts to protect our ecosystems, including its participation in the California Condor Recovery Program, the Turtle Survival Alliance, the Philippine Spotted Deer Program and nearly 20 other California conservation projects.
Enjoy the natural habitats created for the chimpanzees, koalas, orangutans and komodo dragons, which are the highlights of the zoo's sprawling campus. Little ones will love the LA Choo Choo Train located at the Zoopendous Center near the World of Birds. Board the Safari Shuttle when your feet get tired, and cruise through the zoo grounds enjoying the narration of experienced tour guides.
Grab a bite at the Safari Cafe and the Gorilla Grill, or enjoy Cal-Mex at La Casita. Purchase souvenirs, zoo novelties, apparel and gifts at the International Market and Safari Station. These stores are also home to African artifacts, jewelry and unique design objects and there's something to suit everyone's taste.
