Utah’s Hogle Zoo is a Utah treasure. Located at the mouth of Emigration Canyon since 1931, the Zoo is one of the top visited attractions in the state of Utah and the number one paid tourist attraction in Salt Lake City. Spread out over 42 acres, its natural hillside terrain and meandering tree-covered pathways enhance the visitor experience as you discover the wonders of the natural world.

Hogle Zoo has something for everyone! With hundreds of animals from hundreds of species to visit, the splendor of the animal kingdom is yours to behold. Be sure to visit the brand new African Savanna – a 4.5 acre exhibit featuring giraffes, zebras, nyala, ostrich and four majestic African Lions. A polar bear, sea lions, seals, grizzly bears, river otters and bald eagles call Rocky Shores home. Plus 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 rhinoceros.

And, for the young and the young-at-heart, a spin on the Conservation Carousel and the Zoofari Express Train offer added fun on a busy Zoo day.

Be sure to check for animal demonstration times and you’ll want to get a great seat for the popular World of Flight Bird Show!
Open year-round, the Zoo is a wonderful place to enjoy the animal kingdom in all four seasons!
