Animals at the Zoo

Treat yourself and your family to a day at one of the wildest places to visit in Central Florida. Your visit to the Zoo will introduce you to over 400 animals, including some of the rarest and most endangered species on the planet. From watching our two Indian rhinos relax in their pool to feeding a giraffe and seeing snakes slithering up close, discover the world’s most magnificent creatures with a day at the Zoo or get an annual pass and come back year-round.

Family-Friendly Attractions in Central Florida

A day at the Zoo means more than just getting up close and personal with amazing animals—with several unique family-friendly attractions, there’s more to do at the Zoo than ever before. Look out for Keeper Chats happening daily throughout the Zoo, cool off at the Wharton Smith Tropical Splash Ground or go on a unique zip lining adventure, all just steps away from animals from all around the world.

Botanical Gardens

Aside from our residents with feathers, scales and fur, the Zoo is home to many unique and native plants. Throughout our grounds, we’ve created beautiful gardens, abundant with beautiful wildflowers, majestic trees and more. Don’t forget to visit our butterfly garden to watch these delicate creatures fly from flower to flower for a truly breathtaking sight.
