Utah's Hogle Zoo | Kids Out and About Salt Lake City

Utah's Hogle Zoo

Families can see over 800 animals while meandering the zoo's 42 acres. Birthday party packages, special events, classes, and summer camps are offered at the zoo. Zoo Just for You is a new outreach program for classrooms with students who have special needs. Additionally, the zoo offers programs for children with assistance needs and their parents/caregivers.

Up-close Wildlife Connections will give our visitors one-of-a-kind animals experiences where participants will have the opportunity to interact with and feed some of our most popular animals. 100% of funds raised will go directly to helping save wildlife and their habitats. Sign up today as space is limited and will fill up fast.

Hogle Zoo has something for everyone!  With hundreds of animals representing hundreds of different species, the splendor of the splendor of the animal kingdom is yours to behold. African Savanna, will be sure to delight with giraffes, zebras and ostriches, all roaming the savanna while lions watch nearby.  All this and our new Zoofari Express train takes you right through the middle of it all. Other exhibits not to miss –  Rocky Shores, featuring polar bear, sea lions, seals, grizzly bears, river otters and bald eagles, Asian Highlands, a re-creation of a Himalayan village featuring five endangered Asian cat species, and Elephant Encounter — where the Serengeti meets Salt Lake City — and spotlights African elephants and white rhinos.

As part of our Oasis Plaza, the Conservation Carousel takes kids of all ages for a whimsical spin on some of world’s most endangered and threatened animals. Each is a unique work of art, hand carved and painted by skilled craftsmen. All proceeds from the ride are directed to Hogle Zoo conservation causes.

Hogle Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. For perspective, of the more than 2,000 USDA-licensed wildlife exhibitors in the country, fewer than 10% have achieved accreditation. By being AZA accredited, Hogle Zoo is recognized as one of the top zoos in the world.
