Visit our orangutans!
Did you know that orangutans are found only on the islands of Borneo and Sumatra? Or that they are the largest tree-dwelling mammal?
Orangutans are similar to humans in their anatomy, physiology, and behavior, sharing 97 percent of the same genetic material. They are intelligent, can make and use tools, and show evidence of distinct cultural patterns. They have excellent color vision, opposable thumbs, big toes, and grasping hands.
Adventure to Botswana
You are cordially invited to join the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association on this wildlife safari, escorted by L.A. Zoo Director John Lewis. This amazing journey begins in Johannesburg with a day spent relaxing and exploring the city. You then travel to Botswana, where your adventure includes visiting the Okavango Delta and the Linyanti Wildlife Reserve. The optional pre-extension opportunity will allow you to explore Cape Town, South Africa; its beaches, mountains, and winelands - as well as a trip to Robben Island. The post-extension excursion option will take you to Livingstone and Victoria Falls, Zambia.

Why does a bear sleep for so long? Where do the birds go when it’s cold? Why does rabbit fur look thicker in winter? If you have ever asked any of these questions, Winter ZooCamp is for you!
