Featuring a collection of more than 6,000 animals including elephants, red pandas, chimpanzees and rhinos the Houston Zoo is a must-see when you're in town. Use the free GPS-enabled smartphone app to enhance your experience.
Attend special "Photo Days" throughout the year so that shutterbugs can take advantage of a variety of light, weather, and horticultural conditions. If you have the kids with you, head over to the Children's Zoo where you'll find a petting zoo, playround, bat cave, and live shows geared towards the Zoo's younger visitors.
From its newer Galapagos tortoise and jaguar exhibits, to its popular red panda (known as the "world’s cutest animal"), the zoo provides hours of interactive adventure. Houston Zoo is also home to the rare and beautiful okapi or forest giraffe. Cousins of the giraffe, these amazing animals are only found in the most remote rainforests of central Africa.
