The animals are wide spread across the zoo. Set aside at least 2.5 to 3 hours to see all of them without rushing.

It is a smallish zoo, very hilly. The elephants and the baboons were the highlight for us. They have amusement rides at the front, which was a distraction, since the little ones wanted to ride rather than see animals. The restaurant offers some healthier options, but is very small and service was slow.

Up on the hill. Beautiful view of the bay. It's small though. It took us like over an hour to finish most of the zoo.

From Our Editors

Oakland Zoo was first established in 1922, but it didn’t find its permanent home until 1939, when it was thoughtfully constructed amid the rolling hills of Knowland Park. Today, Oakland Zoo is home to more than 660 animals, who thrive in biomes designed to mimic their natural environments.

The sprawling African savannah is one of the zoo’s largest habitats, housing hyenas, zebras, elephants, and giraffes. The centerpiece is a 1.5-acre lion exhibit called Simba Pori, which translates to lion county in Swahili. Inside, a pride of lions freely roam an enclosure outfitted with kopje rock structures, a pond, and a booth where the king can sign autographs.

Over in the rainforest habitat, chimpanzees and white-handed gibbons swing through the treetops. Emus and wallaroos—a cousin of the wallaby and the kangaroo—roam freely in the Wild Australia exhibit, accessible via one of the zoo’s rides, Outback Express Adventure Train. Other rides include the Endangered Species Carousel and Sky Ride, a chairlift that soars above the habitats and offers Bay Area skyline views.
