San Francisco Zoo Tours

The San Francisco Zoo is home to hundreds of unique animals in a combination of natural habitats and imaginative exhibits. It is famous for being the home of Koko the gorilla, as well as the world’s oldest black rhinoceros. The larger animals can be found in the African Savanna, Cat Kingdom, and Grizzly Gulch areas, while the smaller, ever-popular penguins, koalas and lemurs each have their own habitats. There is also a unique insect zoo, which allows for visitors to interact with a variety of live anthropoids, hissing cockroaches, ants, termites, and tarantulas, among others.

In addition the zoo has a few exhibits dedicated to particular parts of the world, such as the Australian WalkAbout and South American Aviary and Tropical Rainforest. Aside from the animals, there are also peaceful gardens with several species of plants as well as a steam train and antique carousel. Families will enjoy a six-acre special area just for children, which includes a nature trail and animal resource center.
