Wonderful ! My daughter had an accident and fell into her water biting through her tongue. The staff was so quick to help out with ice packs and even a little giraffe to cheer her up. The animals seems well taken care of too. We will definitely go back

Great zoo for small kids they had a lot of play areas for the children. As an adult without children I enjoyed the zoo very much. Was on a tight scheduled and went through the whole park in less than two hours.

We have visited the S.B. Zoo on a number of occasions and always enjoy our family time there. Groupon saved me a group of $ and it was very easy to print out the tickets.

From Our Editors

The Santa Barbara Zoo participates in the Species Survival Plan (SSP), a vital cooperative conservation program composed of American Zoo and Aquarium Association (AZA) accredited partner zoos and aquariums. More than 200 different species are managed to maintain diversity among animals in human care and guard against extinction in the wild. This compassion is on display throughout the 30-acre zoo, where critters such as female Asian elephants, California condors, and Chilean flamingos roam in open, naturalistic habitats.

Like most of the 500-plus other creatures at Santa Barbara Zoo, Duncan walks, blinks, and growls. Unlike his fellow animals, however, Duncan isn't real. The life-like Tyrannosaurus Rex and friends (including Tiny the grizzly bear) star in two lively 15-minute shows that reveal how the zoo’s animals are cared for and explain animal behaviors.

Elsewhere on the grounds, guests can ride around the zoo's perimeter in replicas of C.P. Huntington trains from 1863, marvel at stunning Pacific Ocean views or hand-feed Masai giraffes. More hands-on experiences are afforded through the zoo's behind-the-scenes packages, such as the Keeper for a Day program, where visitors work alongside pros as they train and clean up after animals. Along with the daily sights available during visiting hours, the zoo hosts events, camps for youngsters, and overnights, where participants can sleep beside the lion exhibit, across the street from the beach.
