The Great Plains Zoo offers visitors an up-close look at more than 1,000 amazing animals, from Anteaters to Zebras, Penguins to Porcupines, and includes an exciting animal collection often not found in larger zoos: Tigers, Snow Leopards, Giraffe, Rhinoceros, Flamingos and a variety of Primates. We have several opportunities for groups – from guided tours and animal encounters to meeting rooms and meals.  

Discounts are offered for groups of 20 or more. For more information, contact us at 605-367-8313 or email

  • 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.

  • 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.
