Opening hours
10:00 - 17:00
  • See more than 2,000 exotic, endangered and rescued animals and over 250 species across 100 acres
  • Visit the largest lemur exhibition in North America and the San Fran version of the African Savanna
  • Get great Pacific Ocean views, hang out in the lush gardens and take the kids to the carousel and Children’s Zoo and Playground

Located right by the Pacific Ocean, San Francisco Zoo has to be the world's most scenic zoo! See the largest lemur exhibition in North America, watch penguins and grizzly bears being fed, get up close to big cats, and wave to huge primates in the Gorilla Preserve. A fun family day out!

A trip to San Francisco Zoo & Gardens will let you see rhinos and lions up close. It's like traveling to the African Savanna without having to take that long flight!

As home to more than 2000 exotic, endangered and rescued animals, this amazing zoo represents over 250 species across 100 acres.

Going with the family? There's a steam train, a carousel, and a themed play zone to distract the kids from wanting to take that gorilla home. All you'll be bringing home is photos and memories.

Zoo was cool, kids really enjoyed it, had all the typical zoo-ish stuff. Awesome animal variation and massove exhibits, i don't know if its just winter or the zoo is suffering for money but it felt lile alot of the exhibits were run down, some massive areas were closed off or locked up just felt like we missed half the zoo and many cool areas!
The souvineer shop had best coffee in San Fran so far, but don't eat at the Lima cafe or whatever its called (tried purging all memory of it already) worst food I've eaten in years and stupidly high priced. No excuse for food that bad at that price. If you don't care - put a fast food chain in there. If you want to self manage the cafe get a real chef and waaaaay better food. I mean how hard is it to mess up a hotdog, you guys have a captive audience and awesome views and building and it feels like prison food would be better...just do yourself a favour and skip the cafe
