Out of an abundance of caution to help slow the spread of COVID-19, The El Paso Zoo will be closed until further notice.

Sofa Safaris

Sofa Safari has been cancelled

Tune In!

For the next three weeks, the zoo encourages fans at home to tune into the El Paso Zoo’s Facebook page every weekday at 10:00 am and 2:00 pm for Sofa Safaris!

Sofa Safaris will be a chance to virtually meet a zoo animal and ask questions of the keepers who take care of these amazing creatures every day. Sofa Safaris will feature some rare behind the scene training sessions, veterinary exams and many other features never before seen by the visiting public. This will be a great opportunity for you and your family to enjoy the Zoo and get a peek into the Zoo from a different perspective. 

Sofa Safaris will utilize the zoo’s Facebook live platform to allow for real-time interactions with our animals and zoo staff.
