The Sedgwick County Zoo has been the place for exploration and education in Wichita since 1971. Much has changed over the past few decades with the addition of a reptile building, chimpanzee habitat, and jungle among others. Much of the zoo is sectioned off by continent and features more than 3,000 animals including grizzly bears, elephants, and tiger cubs. You can get up close to the giraffes at the giraffe feeding station or walk across a suspended bridge while gazing at colorful macaws.
You can find more fun during one of the zoo’s signature events, which include an Easter Eggstravaganza and Father’s Day car show. Kids can continue their education during summer classes offered weekdays at the Cargill Learning Center. The zoo also offers birthday party packages and serves as an unforgettable wedding venue.
