Cape May County Park and Zoo

Groups will have a wild time exploring Cape May’s 200 acres of exhibits and natural forested areas. The zoo is home to a variety of exotic and native animals, from alpacas and snow leopards to red foxes and dozens of birds. The Behind the Scenes Animal Tour allows groups of 10 or less to view goats, giraffes, monkeys, camels, and more while exploring savannah and grassland habitats. Larger groups will learn fun facts and hear stories about the zoo’s animals while touring with a curator. Groups can complete a scavenger hunt (provided on the zoo’s website) while learning about animal habitats and characteristics.
