In 2019, Zoo Boise unveiled its 2.5-acre, $8.9 million expansion, that features a partnership with Gorongosa National Park in Africa. The Gorongosa expansion includes wild African dogs, baboons, Nile crocodiles, hyenas and much more. Proceeds from each zoo admission goes into a conservation fund supporting endangered species. More than $2 million has been donated to conservation to date.
Zoo Boise is available for private celebrations. Add-ons for events can include animal presentations or zookeeper chats, conservation cruises in the lagoon to the African Plains exhibit, giraffe encounters and unlimited carousel rides.
