This 70-acre zoo and botanic garden delights visitors with over 500 animals and hundreds of botanical species. Stroll the grounds and visit the African Panorama, Tropical Americas, Asian Valley, and Discovery Center. Children of all ages are sure to love the Children’s Enchanted Forest where you can watch River Otters play, climb in a giant spider web, or talk to the parrots. This interactive exhibit, which opened in 2003, has been a very popular addition to the zoo. During your stay at the zoo, take a paddle boat ride on Lake Victoria, tour the zoo by tram, or enjoy the giant renovated ship aboard a bumper boat.
