Utah's Hogle Zoo is a Utah treasure. Located at the mouth of Emigration Canyon since 1931, the Zoo is one of the top visited attractions in the state of Utah and the number one paid tourist attraction in Salt Lake City. Spread out over 42 acres, it’s natural hillside terrain and meandering tree-covered pathways enhance the visitor experience as you discover the wonders of the natural world.
Hogle Zoo has something for everyone! With hundreds of animals from hundreds of species to visit, the splendor of the animal kingdom is yours to behold. Be sure to visit Asian Highlands, a re-creation of a Himalayan village featuring five endangered Asian cat species, and Elephant Encounter — where the Serengeti meets Salt Lake City — and spotlights African elephants and white rhinoceros.
As part of a redesigned central plaza, the new Conservation Carousel takes kids of all ages for a whimsical spin on some of world’s most endangered or threatened animals. Each is a unique work of art, hand carved and painted by skilled craftsmen. A portion of all ride revenue is directed to Hogle Zoo conservation causes.
Hogle Zoo is accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. For perspective, of the more than 2,000 USDA-licensed wildlife exhibitors in the country, fewer than 10% have achieved accreditation. By being AZA accredited, Hogle Zoo is recognized as one of the top zoos in the world.
