Create an itinerary including Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium
In addition to a large variety of South American and African species, Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium houses sealife from all over the world. Choose between an old-fashioned train that will take you through the safari park or a self-guided walking tour. If you'd like a view from above, take a Skyride, similar to a ski lift, for a 15-minute trip over the habitats. The 38 ha (95 acre) grounds include a petting zoo, reptile collection, and open space where animals graze. Don't miss a stop at the animal nursery and the chance to feed the birds. Stroller and wheelchair rentals are available, as well as two restaurants.

  • I most recently visited the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, which is acclaimed the #1 in the US., But I have to say my experience at the Wildlife World in AZ was even better. The map was easy to follow...

  • Ok with the amount of animals they have. Just got tired of seeing the same animal in multiple places. The animals exhibits look horrid the monkeys don't get to roam free and swing on trees like other....  more

  • WOW! Awesome zoo. Spent over 5 hours exploring the zoo grounds. Turns out this is a great place. Enjoyed the day and we seemed to see everything in one day. Very clean grounds and saw so many different species of animals our minds are on overload. We will return for another visit in the fall to see how the change of seasons turns out. Highly recommend a visit if your on the fence.
  • So I’m pretty conflicted, because even though this place was great as far as the animal exhibits were concerned, the park itself was a great disappointment. We loved visiting the monkeys, jaguars, leopards, birds, lizard animals, and things like that, but the park was not taken care of very well. The signs were warping and falling apart. The baby animals building’s restroom wasn’t operating, and there was a giant trash container on the main thoroughfare (Who does that)! The sky lift cafe didn’t have operational AC in 113 degrees, just a box fan in the corner of the room, which is just nuts to me. My family was miserable. The last thing that was pretty disappointing, was that none of the rides were in operation, and none of the food and drink booths were open. Also, the most ridiculous thing ever, was that when we went in to the Safari Grill, they charged us for ice! It was 113 degrees, and they charged us for ice! How…asinine. So, though this place has a great legacy and heritage, it gets two stars, and for now I will say, “Go visit the Phoenix zoo…it’s much better.” If it weren’t for the awesome animals, this place would get one star from me!
