Colorado Springs is home to America's mountain Zoo. Located at 6,714 feet above sea level, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo offers breathtaking views of the city and of its hundreds of animals. The unique design of the Zoo's animal exhibits gets guests closer than ever before. Hand-feed one of the largest reticulated giraffe herds in the world, watch grizzlies swim with trout, hop next to red-necked wallabies, waddle alongside African penguins and get hands-on with some of the Zoo's smaller residents in The Loft.
