Getting forth ready
Nestled in a natural forest setting, the zoo features naturalistic animal displays throughout its 52 acres and includes elephants, rhinos, giraffes, gibbon apes, lemurs, rare Sumatran tigers and a world-class herpetarium. The Cameron Park Zoo opened its new Asian Forest exhibit in summer, 2009. Built as a ruined Asian temple, the exhibit features endangered orangutans and a Komodo Dragon. This natural habitat zoo also offers a African savanna, Brazos River Country exhibit, aquarium, gift shop and cafes.
