Experience a zoo like no other – on a mountainside overlooking Colorado Springs. Feed our famous giraffe herd, hop with the wallaby mob, feel the powerful roars of our lion pride, come eye-to-eye with orangutans and (if you dare) smell the slobber of a grizzly bear.
Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is a tax-exempt, non-profit public trust for the purpose of providing recreation, education, conservation and scientific facilities in the field of zoology and related subjects, and to preserve the Zoo in perpetuity for the people of the Pikes Peak Region. The Zoo is one of only a handful of accredited zoos in the nation that operates without local tax support, depending entirely on admissions, membership dues, donations and grants for funding. Your support is critical to our future.
