Discover Exciting Wildlife Parks And Zoos In Arizona

Treat yourself to a day of fun at wildlife parks and zoos in Arizona.


Open year round, Bearizona is a premiere drive-thru wildlife preserve located in northern Arizona near the town of Williams. The park features an interactive, drive tour where guests can view a variety of rare, native species in their natural habitat from the safety and comfort of their automobile. Drive the winding track and view the black bear, tundra wolf, brown bison, and many more.

Bearizona also features a walk-thru area where guests can experience certain animals on a more up-close-and-personal approach – including the black bear, otters, porcupine, a farm animal exhibit and more. Also on-site, the property houses a fully accommodating restaurant and gift shop.
