We enjoyed visiting this zoo. It had a large open area where several animals were able to roam. My favorite part is the ability to feed the giraffe's, which was adorable to watch.

Who knew the Fresno Chaffee Zoo had grown so much! I had been as a kid and wanted to check it out to take our grand kids sometime. Well, we don't live in Fresno, but ended up buying a membership. We liked it that much!...More

The Chafee Zoo in Fresno is top notch. Their animal displays are very interesting and the wild Africa exhibit has a very natural setting. Would enjoy visiting several times per year.

We brought the 'grandkids' to experience the sea lion cove, they also got to feed the giraffes. As experiences go with little kids it was fun. They enjoyed the adventure. I was happy to share the experience with them.

No you cannot get a snake placed on you in the zoo they are kept behind glass. There is a reptile store in north Fresno that does allow you to touch different animals though.
