Our penultimate stop on 2019 Zoocation was the always terrific Oakland Zoo. I have been visiting this facility for the past 20 years when my niece moved to the west coast. It has grown and only gotten more enjoyable with each visit. A big shout out to Chantal for arranging our visit and to docent Guy for a fun filled tour of the California trail. We spent a lot of time watching their bears play in the water and also spotting their litter of wolf pups. The views are amazing from the top of the facility. If you are on the west coast I encourage you to visit.

Last week’s short sojourn to California to see family included a zoo visit of course. This time we chose the Oakland Zoo as it has had a major expansion over the past year. Last summer they opened the California Trail to the public, focusing on this state’s native wildlife. A fun gondola ride takes you to the top of the zoo where you are greeted with a delicious restaurant and great views. Along the trail, you encounter animals such as American black bears, American bison, California condors, eagles, gray wolves, grizzly bears, jaguars and mountain lions. The rest of the zoo is thoroughly enjoyable. If you are anywhere in the area I encourage a visit.

It has been four years since we visited the Oakland Zoo. I have always liked that zoo but now there are some even bigger improvements. They have added a whole lot of acreage and built a cable car that goes up the mountain to an event center with a delicious new cafe and extraordinary views of San Francisco. If you are in the area – go visit.

malayan batIt has been a number of years since we have visited the Oakland Zoo and the entire family enjoyed the experience.  Blue skies, warm sun, and a terrific, active collection made for great family fun.  We especially enjoyed the young sun bears, gibbon, lovey giraffes, the best bat exhibit I have ever seen, and the four new goat kids. If you are in the area you should definitely pay them a visit.

I love to visit the Oakland Zoo when I am on the West Coast.  It is always fun, the hills give you a great workout and there are always lots of wonderful animals to view and adore. If you want to see the photos larger click here.
