The Calgary Zoo will be closing the African Savannah building to perform necessary scheduled maintenance from April 29, 2019 – May 10, 2019, to ensure we maintain the highest level of care for the building’s residents. The building is scheduled to be reopened to the public on Saturday, May 11, 2019. Due to this closure, we have made some temporary changes to our Daily Programs!
Revised Morning Schedule:
- Thursday May 2 & 9 at 10:00 a.m. – Red River Hog Snackers, Outdoor Habitat
Revised Afternoon Schedule:
- Tuesday April 30 & May 7 at 1:00 p.m. – Savannah Yard Snackers (Giraffe, Zebra, Ostrich), Savannah Yard
- Wednesday May 1 & 8 at 1:00 p.m. – Gorilla Snackers, Gorilla Habitat
- Friday May 3 & 10 at 1:00 p.m. – Penguin Snackers, inside Penguin Plunge
During the closure there are some animals that won’t be visible. They are the hippopotamus, meerkats, and African crested porcupines. Red river hogs will be in their outdoor habitat and giraffes will be in the Savannah Yard (both weather dependent).
We apologize for any inconvenience and would like to thank you for your patience as we work to improve our zoo!
