Monterey Zoo

400 River Rd, Salinas, CA 93908

Monterey Zoo is a unique zoological experience, centrally located off the Monterey-Salinas Highway.  You will come closer to wild and exotic animals at Monterey Zoo than in most other zoos.  Home to 100+ exotic animals ranging from spiders to African elephants, many of the zoo’s animals have extremely close and personal relationships with their handlers and trainers which they are able to share with visitors. The zoo runs a full-time educational program that touches thousands of children and adults annually, both on and off the property.  Full contact experiences with the animals are available by appointment.  Vision Quest Safari B&B, a one of a kind safari style overnighting alternative, is also available on the property - the perfect complement to an already unique zoological experience.
