Nominated as America’s Favorite Zoo by Microsoft Game Studios in 2005, the Tulsa Zoo houses more than 2,500 animals on its 84 acres of land. Its exhibits consist of Africa; Dave Zucconi Conservation Center; Tropical American Rainforest; Oceans and Islands; Asia; and the Children’s Zoo.
Your entire day doesn’t have to be spent at the exhibits. There are many other activities at the zoo for you and your family. Take your kids for a ride on the ONEOK Safari Train and ARVEST Wildlife Carousel. Would you like to tour the zoo atop a Dromedary Camel? Take a camel tour. If you’re not afraid of heights, explore the 25-foot Monolith and Frogger climbing wall. If you’re into treasure hunts, you can partake in the Hardesty Gem Dig. You’ll have the opportunity to look for buried treasure such as rocks, minerals, and gems. Whatever treasure you find, will be yours to keep.
