Discover Life On Earth at the Calgary Zoo!

From the splendor of the Rocky Mountains to the heart of Destination Africa, The Calgary Zoo takes you to see almost 1,000 animals from around the world. Trek through the gorilla’s rainforest, safari over the Savannah to watch the hippos swim, or climb the Canadian Wilds to see a grizzly bear. Cool off and get beak to nose with 4 species of penguins in our popular Penguin Plunge or visit the new greater one-horned rhino, mandrills and komodo dragons! Wind down your trip with a walk through our fragrant Dorothy Harvie Gardens or sit with the butterflies in ENMAX Conservatory. You'll love knowing that every visit helps protect endangered animals at home and in the wild.
