Africa Pathway Closed

The pedestrian pathway to Africa is currently closed due to construction on our elephant exhibit. Africa will only be accessible by tram, which is free to all guests during this time. Thank you for your patience while we improve your Zoo.

California Sea Lion

KC Zoo Sea Lion


Instantly recognizable by their playful antics, barking vocalizations and adorable ears, California sea lions are highly intelligent pinnipeds.  You can find our six sea lions near the front of the Zoo and watch our Sea Lion Splash show daily.
