About Oakland Zoo in Oakland, California

The Oakland Zoo is home to over 375 animals from 125 different species living in lush, naturalistic settings. The collection is organized in biomes, geographic regions that represent the ecosystem of that area. From Africa, to Asia, to Australia, to California 1820 Region.

For a fun-filled view of the Zoo, take a ride on the “C.P. Huntington” miniature train, a two-thirds size replica of the Civil War-era locomotive. Then soar high over the hills on the Sky Ride to view American bison and tule elk grazing below on the “North American Range”. This 15 minute chair lift ride also offers a panoramic view of the San Francisco Bay. Fun continues with a ride on the old-fashioned carousel and other children’s rides in the rides area.
