Of course! We encourage our guests to take personal videos or still photographs while enjoying their Zoo visit. All images and videos taken by guests and patrons are allowed free of charge so long as the images are used for personal, non-commercial purposes. All photographs should be taken from designated guest viewing areas or within the boundaries as it relates to special programs, engagements, etc.
How long do we need to see the entire zoo?
The Zoo includes approximately 2.5 miles of walking paths and is divided into four different trails – Arizona, Africa, Tropics, and Children’s. Usually, the Africa and Tropics Trails take about an hour each and the Arizona and Children’s Trails take about a half-hour each. We recommend approximately three hours to see the entire Zoo, depending on the size and ages of your group and how fast you walk. Because we create exhibits that replicate the animals’ natural habitats, some animals can be difficult to see and visitors may be required to spend more time in observation.
Can I bring my own food/beverages? Coolers permitted?
You may bring coolers, ice chests, and your own food. Please no glass containers or alcoholic beverages.
Can I bring my pet?
No. The only animals allowed to accompany guests are trained and vaccinated service animals. Park Rangers are unable to kennel any personal pet and we do not recommend leaving any pet in an unattended vehicle.
