Explore the world without leaving Springfield. Your zoo adventure includes hundreds of animals representing South America, Asia, Africa, Australia and our own Missouri Habitats. Tour the Ambler Diversity of Life exhibits for an up-close look at reptiles, amphibians and insects. The zoo’s “Tropical Asia” region showcases Asian elephants, tigers and primates. In “Africa,” stand eye-to-eye with giraffes on the feeding/viewing deck (seasonal operation). Learn some of our state’s natural history in “Missouri Habitats,” home to gray wolves, mountain lions, river otters, bobcats, black bears and other native animals. Take a lakefront tour of primate islands on the Titus Express miniature train (seasonal operation). Kids will enjoy exploring the playground and cooling off with a splash in the “Jumping Jewels” water play feature. Relax at the Bush Country Café and shop at the Safari Trading Company for souvenirs to remember your visit. Let your imagination run wild – and, don’t forget your camera!
