Make sure to print before you go service is Intermitting. You can bring food in to save money. Always bring a light jacket, the wind can be a little chilly even if it's sunny there.

The Oakland Zoo is a great zoo! My kids who are 1, 9, and 16 all enjoy what it has to offer. It's not as big as other zoo's in larger cities, but they have an excellent variety of exhibits! And they are much better than the SF Zoo! I especially love that all the animals were rescues.

About Oakland Zoo

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.
