Nestled between the beautiful beach of Waikiki and the glorious heights of the Diamond Head, the Honolulu Zoo is home to animals of over a thousand diverse species; mostly mammals, reptiles, amphibians and birds featured in three tropical ecological zones: the African savannah, the Asian and American tropical forests, and the Pacific Islands. Its 42-hectare park is the only zoo in the United States granted to the people by a sovereign monarch.
