Some of Africa’s most notable animals can be found at the Great Plains Zoo. See Giraffe, Zebras, and Ostrich roam together on our African Savannah exhibit. Next door, you’ll watch our pair of African Painted Dogs run and play in a lush yard. Three Eastern Black Rhinos can be found at our state-of-the-art Rare Rhinos of Africa exhibit, which features two outdoor yards and a Day Room for training and year-round Rhino viewing.
Love this zoo! Great place to get a walk in and the animals are everywhere! The museum/indoor part is very educational too. Has a lot of shade for when it's hot out. Very clean. Friendly staff.Taylor F•Sioux Falls
We love to visit the zoo. They have great outdoor exhibits and lots to do inside as well. Great for kids and adults.Robin A
Lots of great exhibits and animals to see! Fun gift shop and learning center.Stephanie N
A really great zoo featuring some exotic species and I liked the focus on conservancy/breeding to preserve species for the rhinos. The safari area's cheetah was awesome to see. During a week day going, it was quite open to walk around and enjoy without too much crowding.Joseph H
The museum gives you a break from the sun on hot summer days and has a great selection of animal exhibits from around the world. The zoo keeps growing and adding new animal habitats or improving existing ones. Membership offers reciprocal benefits to other zoos around the country.Bill T
