Sedgwick County Zoo: The Australian Outback By Way of Wichita

The Sedgwick County Zoo may be smaller than those in many larger cities, but with its diverse selection of animals and its beautiful, lush greenery, it remains one of Wichita's most-loved attractions. Wide walking paths wind their way through areas separated by region and species, including the Far East, the rainforest, and the Australian Outback.

There are wild tigers and elephants housed in areas that mimic their natural habitats, as well as leopards, lions, and other big cats on the prowl. Sheep and camels roam about the plains, while monkeys swing from the trees and make the little ones giggle with their animated play. You’ll even find a large selection of reptiles, including iguanas and lizards.

The zoo is designed to make exploration easy for people of all ages, and it is designed to be very accessible for all. With affordable prices and a tasty food court, you can easily spend the whole day at the zoo!
