Whether on safari to spot the great Sumatran tiger or seeking towering giraffes roaming the Savanna, a day at the Zoo offers adventures like no other place in the Valley.
Visit the Phoenix Zoo and explore a wondrous world of curiosity and discovery. With exciting experiences like Stingray Bay, Monkey Village and 4-D Theater, your visit to the Zoo will be memorable for the entire family. The Zoo is one of the nation’s largest non-profit zoos, committed to conservation and providing experiences that motivate people to care for the natural world.
