There are three food concession areas at the Pittsburgh Zoo. At The Village, which is at the entrance to the Zoo, there are both gift shops and food vendors. There is a picnic pavilion with benches and tables for visitors who have brought their own food with them. Food vendors sell a variety of items, including pizza, chicken tenders, hot dogs and corn dogs, beverages, cookies, popcorn, ice cream, cotton candy, wraps, sandwiches, and salads.
In the Kids Kingdom, across from the kangaroo exhibit, there are more food concessions. Visitors may purchase hot dogs, potato chips, soft pretzels, pizza, salads, wraps, drinks, cookies, and soft-serve ice cream.
Near The African Savanna area of the zoo is The Jambo Cafe. With both indoor and outdoor seating, the Jambo Cafe has thematic decor to give diners the illusion that they are eating in Africa. While eating, visitors may look out upon the cheetahs, elephants, zebras, and giraffes. The Jambo Cafe serves made-to-order salads, artisan pizza and sandwiches; gluten-free and vegetarian options are also available.
The Pittsburgh Zoo offers Zoo Camps for children aged 2-13. Campers have the opportunity to meet wild animals close-up, to learn about conservation, about creating naturalistic zoo habitats for wild creatures, and about wildlife photography. Field trips for classes and children's organizations are offered, and the zoo's Zoomobile does animal outreach to classrooms, nursing homes, retirement homes, and seniors' centers.
The Pittsburgh Zoo has an ATM, two first aid stations, water fountains, restrooms, three gift shops, food concessions, and a tram as an alternative to walking around the zoo.
