The three-acre African Savanna, Grizzly Gulch, a children's petting zoo, a gorilla preserve, and the expansive Lemur Forest are among the highlights of the zoo, where more than 1,000 species of mammals and birds make their home. Spread across 100 acres across from the Pacific Ocean, the zoo features environments from around the world, including an Australian Walkabout with kangaroos and emus, Sumatran and Siberian tigers, and Amazonian anacondas. Don't miss the thoroughly entertaining meerkat habitat, the insect zoo, with its tarantulas and giant hissing cockroaches, and the Little Puffer Train. Combine your visit with a walk along Ocean Beach and maybe lunch at the Beach Chalet or Louis' Diner.
