Road tripping through California isn’t just about staying in the RV until the next campground. Sometimes you have to get out and stretch your legs for an afternoon. There’s no better way to get some fresh air and take in some family-friendly fun than paying a visit to the Sacramento Zoo while exploring the Golden State in your California RV rental.


The Sacramento Zoo can be found at Land Park Drive and 16th Street in Sacramento, CA – an easy trip to make in your California RV rental from Advantage Caravans.


There are almost 400 different species of animals for you to discover when you spend some time at the Sacramento Zoo while road tripping with your RV rental in California.

Tall Wonders: The zoo’s giraffes call this world-class exhibit home. An elevated deck gives visitors the opportunity to see the world’s tallest land mammal eye-to-eye. For just $3, zoo guests can purchase a ticket to join the giraffes for feeding time. Remember to only feed the giraffes the provided “browse” (acacia and elm branches), as the zoo’s veterinary staff strictly monitor all of the animals’ diets.

Manageable Adventure: As a smaller facility, the Sacramento Zoo is perfect for the traveling family – making it an ideal place to stop off at while on your family road trip. In about two hours, you can explore the entire zoo and spend a good amount of time taking in each enclosure. The smaller size of the zoo means that zookeepers and staff can spend more time focusing on the care of the animals and on the visitors’ experiences.

For the Kids: All kids love a trip to the zoo, but amenities at the Sacramento Zoo make the experience even more fun. Adults and children alike love taking a tour throughout the grounds on the zoo’s train. The merry-go-round is also a great place for parents to catch a few minutes of rest while kids enjoy a ride on replicas of the very same animals they’ve been observing all day.


The Sacramento Zoo is open daily from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.


Adults: $11.25

Seniors: $10.50

Children (2-11): $7.25
