Over 1,000 animals await your visit to San Francisco's impressive zoo.


Nestled within the sprawling grounds of the city’s picturesque Ocean Beach, the San Francisco Zoo is a captivating destination that promises an unforgettable wildlife adventure. Stepping through its gates, you are immediately transported to a world where fascinating creatures from all corners of the globe come to life.

The zoo opened its gates to the public for the first time in 1929 and currently houses over 1,000 different animals hailing from over 250 species.

For those seeking a truly immersive experience, the Lion House presents an opportunity to come face to face with the kings and queens of the animal kingdom. Specially designed viewing areas allow you to observe the majestic big cats as they bask lazily in the sun, always exuding an aura of sheer power.

The zoo also takes great pride in its dedication to marine life conservation. Take, for example, the aptly named Penguin Island, where you will witness the delightful waddles of playful penguins as they dive into the icy waters.

San Francisco Zoo provides a wide range of entertainment and education for people of all ages, while also promoting species protection by taking care of the preservation of endangered species.
