From humble beginnings in 1927 to becoming a sprawling success today, the Sacramento Zoo is certainly a spot your group will want to consider during your big city journey. This local animal haven is located within William Land Park and holds just over 500 animals today, the zoo starting out with a mere 40. The ‘Little Zoo in the Park’ now represents over 120 different species, the animals inside including several native, endangered, and rare species.
Stop by and see the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish, and ‘animal ambassadors’ all throughout the park, the latter of which participate in stage shows, wildlife encounters, and travel through Zoomobile. Meet the African Hedgehog, have an up close and personal encounter with the exotic Kinkajou, or perhaps go in for a ball python viewing. A popular activity here is the Giraffe Encounter, always a guest favorite. It is worth noting that the Sacramento Zoo takes serious pride in conservation, as well as education. A heavy emphasis is placed on animal welfare and conservation here, setting guests minds at ease as they enjoy animal education.
