Gunda the Asian elephant is the superstar of this zoo. One of four Asian elephants, Gunda has lived here for 60 years and is just as spry as the day she came to Tulsa. In addition to the elephants, your family will surely enjoy shows with Dorsey the sea lion each day at 11 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. This zoo also has about 24 African penguins that are a delight to watch, a troupe of eight chimpanzees and five giant Aldabra turtles, among other creatures.
The Macaw Island Grill is a great stop for lunch or afternoon refreshments. If you are a member of a zoo at home, show your AZA membership card at the gate here for a 50 percent discount on admission.
