Guests are welcome to bring outside food to Fresno Chaffee Zoo. For the safety of guests and animals, please leave glass, aluminum cans, straws and alcohol at home. Although no large ice chests are allowed, personal coolers are acceptable. For guests who would like to purchase food at the Zoo, there are two dining options available.
Fresno Chaffee Zoo offers an exciting dining option centered in our African Adventure exhibit: Kopje Lodge. With breathtaking views of the African Savanna, guests can enjoy gourmet entrees such as artisan sandwiches, oven-roasted pizza, fresh salads and more – all while viewing African elephants, rhinos, wildebeest and other African species! The Kopje Lodge also features beer and wine.
Fresno Chaffee Zoo’s original dining option, Safari Café, is a classic Zoo staple! At the Safari Café, guests can enjoy fresh cooked breakfast burritos and other classic hits such as grilled cheese, French fries, corn dogs, and even ice cream for those hot summer days!
Located behind the Kopje Lodge inside African Adventure, sits Kudu Café serving coffee, beverages, pastries, snacks and ice cream.
