Zoo on the Mountain

03 Aug, 2015

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is unique for a few reasons: it’s the only mountain zoo in America, it’s home to over 950 different animals, including animals you don’t see in zoos too often (including moose and hippos) and it has a special area where visitors can hand feed giraffes. Located less than twenty minutes from our Manitou Springs hotel, apart from just interacting with the giraffes, visitors can also feed and train different birds, hold wallabies and more. The zoo also has a chair-lift styled Sky Ride that takes you up and over the zoo to see it from a unique angle. All of this and more makes for a day at America's only mountain zoo an experience you won’t soon forget!

Address: 4250 Cheyenne Mountain Zoo Road, Colorado Springs
