Spend A Day At The Oakland Zoo

The Oakland Zoo is the perfect destination for those who want to spend the day outdoors while learning about animals from across the globe.

Nestled within Knowland Park, the zoo dates back to 1922, and its mission is to inspire respect for and stewardship of the natural world while providing a quality visitor experience.

The zoo is one of the most recognized in the United States for both its humane treatment of animals and worldwide conservation efforts.

Highlights include:

Wild Australia

Hop aboard the Outback Express Train to see amazing animals as well as a picturesque view of the bay. As the train chugs through the exhibit, passengers see kangaroos, emus, Eastern wallaroos, and so much more.

African Veldt

Known as the zoo’s focal point, the African Veldt transports visitors to the plateaus found in South Africa and Zimbabwe. The exhibit is home to giraffes, Egyptian geese, and elands.

African Savanna

This area spans four acres, and there is much to see. Watch the magnificent elephants drink water, listen to lions roar, crawl through the meerkat viewing tunnel, and wander through the Savanna Reptile cave just to name a few.

Rain Forest

The rain forest features climbing structures, lush foliage, and naturalistic rockwork. It’s where animals such as squirrel monkeys, chimpanzees, and cotton-topped tamarins live and play, while the majestic tigers splash in their pool.
