The San Francisco Zoo is located on Sloat Blvd at Great Highway, in San Francisco, CA. The zoo offers some of the best and most fascinating animals in the Bay Area. The San Francisco Zoo features lions, red pandas, and many other animals, along with gardens throughout the zoo. For food and drink, the zoo features the Leaping Lemur Cafe to eat at.


There are many ways to reach the San Francisco Zoo by transit. If you are riding MUNI, the MUNI bus lines 18 and 23 stop in front of the zoo, while the MUNI Metro line L stops near the zoo. You get a $1 ticket on admission if you show your MUNI transfer, receipt , or monthly pass. 


If you are planning to take CalTrain to SF, exit at Fourth and King Streets and transfer to MUNI Metro Lines T or N, which will take you to any Market Street Station. Proceed to Line L for service to the zoo.

If your taking BART to SF, exit at Embarcadero, Montgomery, Powell, or Civic Center and transfer to Line L.
