Zoo’s exhibits, on landscapes that suggest everything from Africa to North America, feature a huge variety of animals

From anteaters to zebras, the animals at the Roger Williams Park Zoo & Carousel Village amaze and amuse visitors. African elephants, Masai giraffes, red pandas, snow leopards, bison, howler monkeys, river otters and dozens of other species inhabit the zoo’s 40 acres, with exhibits that reflect the landscapes of Africa, North America and Marco Polo’s desert and mountain treks. There’s also a walking path through the wetlands (watch for great blue herons) and concessions with everything from made-to-order salads to gourmet burgers. The Soaring Eagle Zip Ride offers breathtaking views, 115 feet up, from comfortable side-by-side seats. At the nearby Carousel Village, you can ride a colonial horse on an historic carousel, or take a train excursion.
