On May 31, 2010, Noah and Kaleb, 2 dromedary camels, came to live at the Santa Ana Zoo for the summer.
Camel rides have started, and you can climb atop one of these magnificent animals into a custom made saddle and ride around our urban oasis.
The camels just moved into their new home and can be found this summer in the …yard just north of the “Colors of the Amazon” walk through aviary.
Famous for their ability to trek long distances through the desert, camels have been great service animals since biblical times.
Camel rides open this weekend, June 26/27 at the Santa Ana Zoo!
Rides are only $5, and will be open from 10:30 am to 4:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday.
On Resident Free Day, the second Tuesday of each month, residents of Santa Ana may visit our Zoo for free. Proof of residency (driver’s license, utility bill) will be required upon arrival. Not valid to schools or business addresses.
