With nearly 1,000 animals, comprehensive daily programming, and cafés/restaurants with locally sourced, sustainable food, there’s so much to do at the Calgary Zoo that it’s hard to know where to start. That’s why we’ve put together a guide for planning your perfect visit! We’ll cover all the must-see spots and activities, so you don’t have to worry about a thing:
It might not be the first activity you think of, but chilly winter days like today are one of the best times to visit the zoo! Not only do they make for a relaxing stroll through our park without the busyness of fair-weather crowds, but they also increase the chance of catching some of our cold-weather-loving animals in action! Animals who thrive in cooler weather tend to be more active on chilly days, which means you might see a whole different side of them. That’s why we’ve put together a list of some of the best animals to keep your eye out for when the temperature drops:
Penguin Walk – If you think you can handle the cuteness, our king penguins’ daily walks through the zoo are a sight to see.
Safari Brunch – If you haven’t experienced a Safari Brunch yet, you’re missing out. What better way to enjoy a Sunday than with a delicious buffet breakfast before exploring the zoo.
Panda Breakfast – Beat the crowds and visit the giant pandas before they officially open to the public for the day. Enjoy a delicious meal before enjoying an exclusive viewing of the pandas going about their morning routine.
Four giant pandas have made a home in Calgary! For their move to #yyc, the Calgary Zoo was proud to build them a beautiful, sustainable place to live with the help of Zeidler Architecture.
