Great place to visit on a day with ideal weather. The zoo looks over a picturesque view of the valley and the bay. The animals available are fewer but grand. The ticket price feels a little steep at first, but when you come to know how much Oakland Zoo contributes to nature and wildlife conservation, it feels worth it.
We went early and rode the gondolas up to California Trail as soon as we got in. So many animals were out. Five wolves (could only get pics of 3 of them), a grizzly bear playing in the pool, bald eagles, a jaguar, bison getting fed. Great exhibit.
I loved this new addition to the zoo. The gondola ride is slow so you can take in the sights. It shows that Oakland is beautiful. The native animals were fun and friendly. Really beautiful.
