From the splendor of the Rocky Mountains to the heart of Destination Africa, The Calgary Zoo takes you to see almost 900 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 endangered red pandas and amur tigers in Eurasia! 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. NEW in 2017 is the unique and immersive permanent Land of Lemurs exhibit. Coming in 2018 are the iconic giant pandas!

My favorite zoo by far. A little of everything here to see. You can spend a day or just a few hours and you will get your money worth.

Lots of walking ... do it at your own pace ... many sights and sites to relax and enjoy. Take the family ... of all ages ... there are huge animals and small ones. Unusual animals and habitat.

Great place for family time. Learning about animals and plants. Way better than the Edmonton zoo for the variety.

Don't miss a visit if you come to Calgary! It's a stellar attraction with wonderful educational programs and enclosures with good freedom for the animals and decent viewing sites for tourists.

We have bought our yearly pass 2 years in a row, our son loves it, the zoo offers the usual attractions plus seasonal ones (xmas light). They also have a event center and offer good brunch options in the week end. A must in YYC
