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, leopards, giraffes, rhinoceros, flamingos and a variety of primates. We have several opportunities for groups – from guided tours and animal encounters to meeting rooms and meals.
Senior and group discounts are offered. Parking is free, and curbside drop-offs are available. For more information, call our group services coordinator at 605.367.8313, ext. 125 or e-mail Stacey.
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

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
