During spring through late fall, hop on board the zoo's open-air Motor Safari trams and take a narrated tour of the entire zoo. As part of the zoo's commitment to conservation, the Motor Safari trams are powered by clean burning compressed natural gas.
Your Motor Safari ticket entitles you to ride all day. You can get on or off at any of four stations:
North (near Carousel)
South (near Hamill Family Play Zoo)
West (near Great Bear Wilderness)
East (between Children’s Zoo and Safari Grill)
Motor Safari Ticket Prices
Seniors (65 and over) $2.50
Children (3 to 11) $2.50
Children (2 and under) Free
Prices are subject to change. Umbrella type folding strollers are allowed on the Motor Safari as space allows.
Environmentally friendly natural gas from Nicor Gas, our official partner in "creature comfort,"
powers these vehicles.
