Calgary Zoo


I hope you know that zoo is more than just a place to see animals. Like accredited zoos and aquariums across the world, Calgary Zoo is a force for animal care, research and conservation.


Calgary Zoo has partnered with other conservation organizations to help reintroduce and recover endangered species including Vancouver Island marmots, whooping cranes, swift foxes, black-footed ferrets, burrowing owls and more, offering both ability and captive-bred animals for release.



When we hear word Zoo, first thing that comes to our mind is kids. Zoo is for kids not for adults. Once you visit a Zoo, you will realize this statement is completely incorrect. Below are things you can do to have good time in Calgary Zoo.



Canadian Wilds


Get to know some of Canada’s most impressive animals as you wander along the forested pathways of the Canadian Wilds. You’ll see bears splashing in their pond, wolves snoozing in the sun and eagles perched high in the treetops. Even if you’re a hiker, you’ve probably never had such extraordinary views of cougars, bison, bighorn sheep and mountain goats.


Things to see here


Black bear, Grizzly Bear, Whooping Crane, Woodland Caribou



Conservatory and Gardens


You might come for the animals, but you could find yourself spending more time than you bargained for admiring our botanical side. Wander along lush pathways, to explore a living library of trees and plants – including a few that might surprise you. Kiwi fruit in Alberta? You bet! All paths lead to the ENMAX Conservatory where you’ll find a steamy butterfly garden and jungle atmosphere – complete with banana trees and pineapple plants.



Habitat Gardening



The Calgary Zoo’s animal habitats are carefully choreographed to create healthy homes for the zoo’s animals. If you think about it, the zoo is really a garden. Our habitat gardeners carefully select and place plants because they  provide shelter, comfort, food and fun for our animals.

Destination Africa


Trek down steamy tropical rain-forest pathways alive with lush plants and singing, colorful birds. Along the way, you’ll see gorillas, colobus monkeys and mandrill in their family groups. But don’t let the cute primates distract you – keep a watchful eye out for snakes and crocodiles too. Then, wander over to the Savannah to see hippos underwater in their huge pool, giraffes and zebras grazing in the distance and lions snoozing in the sunshine.


Things to see


Animals – African Lions, gorillas, Giraffe, Hippos


Places – TransAlta rain forest, Safari through African Savannah, Family fun for the little ones
