San Francisco Zoo “is pleased to be the first zoo in America to deliver Zoo Ranger tours.”

“Even if you’ve been to the Zoo before, you’ll now see the Zoo from the eyes of the keepers by renting your own personal Zoo Ranger! Zoo Ranger is a hand-held, GPS-triggered device that takes you on an insider’s tour of the Zoo through audio and video. Choose from various options to see how we care for our wonderful animals and learn more about them. You’ll meet many of our individual animals and be touched by their unique personalities and compelling stories. Go virtually “behind-the-scenes” at 25 of our most popular exhibits to experience keeper and animal interactions, witness behavior training, and enjoy animal enrichment sessions. You can even test your wildlife knowledge with the interactive Zoo Trivia feature!”
