Arizona’s Wildlife World Zoo is a safari park, aquarium, and zoo that makes up the largest collection of exotic animals in the state. Many of the animals are endangered species; most recently the zoo welcomed a pair of cheetahs. The park offers a variety of animal encounters to increase awareness. From sea lion shows and petting zoos to giraffe feedings and stingray pools, there is no shortage of face time with the animals.
Most recently, the Safari Park was added bringing the total size of the park to over 80 acres. Visitors can experience panoramic views of Africa’s most interesting habitats, including lions, baboons, antelope, and jackals. ‘Dragonworld' features ectotherms, including a large white crocodile, which use their environment to control body temperatures. At times there are even baby animals in the baby nursery that can be visited. Boat, train, and tram rides make the park easily accessible and extra fun.
The Wildlife World Zoo is located in Litchfield, Arizona. To get there, take the Loop 101, exiting at Northern Avenue. Admission is $32 for adults and $15.95 for children. It is open daily, 365 days a year, from 9 am to 6 pm. The aquarium is open until 9 pm. Check animal show times ahead.
