One of Salt Lake City’s top attractions, Utah’s Hogle Zoo is a 42-acre space located at the base of the Wasatch Mountain Range within Emigration Canyon. The zoo houses several diverse exhibits, each of which illustrates a unique ecosystem. The elephant encounter is a fascinating and expansive exhibit showcasing white rhinoceros and African elephants in several environments.
The Asian highlands exhibit features the Siberian lynx, Pallas’ cats, snow leopards, Amur leopards, and Amur tigers. The Rocky Shores exhibit houses harbor seals, grizzly bears, polar bears, and sea lions. Meanwhile, the African Savannah exhibit introduces guests to African lions, zebras, ostriches, and finally, giraffes, who are housed in a separate area where guests are welcome to feed them.
