An international animal experience right at home with the Elmvale Jungle Zoo!


For more than 50 years, a trip to the Elmvale Jungle Zoo has made for a great outing to enjoy with friends and family. Although things this summer have had to change a lot, the fantastic experience that the Elmvale Jungle Zoo has always provided is no different than it has always been! In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the zoo has successfully implemented a number of safety precautions to ensure that your visit to the park is safe while still just as enjoyable as always.

Ahead of your visit, you are required to book a time through the Elmvale Jungle Zoo website. In efforts to reduce the number of people visiting the zoo at the same time, spots are limited and booking might need to be done a lot in advance so make sure to check their availability ASAP.

While at the zoo, wearing a mask is not required for visitors however; the employees do wear masks or visors. The main path through the zoo has been modified to only be one-way, creating a good flow as you go from animal to animal. Practicing physical distancing is made easy and effortless throughout the whole park. With the new limited number of visitors, often you can view an animal with no other visitors around, getting them all to yourself!

In addition, physical distancing reminders, hand sanitizing pumps as well as outdoor handwashing stations are placed throughout the zoo, especially in front of many of the more popular animals.

Despite the new modifications, as always, the animals are a lot of fun to see and experience up close! With Giraffes, Zebras, Lions, Tigers, Llamas, Monkeys of all kinds and so many more incredible animals from all over the world, enjoy an international animal experience so close to home!

From beginning to end, the zoo takes a total of approximately an hour and a half. Try to schedule your visit earlier in the day when the heat and sun aren’t as strong and the animals are well-rested and ready to go!

Stay updated with all the safety measures that the zoo is implementing and any changes that might come along on the Elmvale Jungle Zoo website as the current state of the pandemic continues progressing.
