The Cape May Zoo is part of the top 5 zoos in the U.S. and is ranked 13 in the world!

Rankings were determined by reviews that were some of the best that I've ever seen.

The Cape May Zoo has 550 animals, 250 species including the African Lion, Cheetah, Giraffe, Cotton Top Tamarin, Red Panda and Snow Leopard. Did you know the zoo is also home to 13 flamingos from Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch?

The Treetop Adventure Course or Tree To Tree Adventure Park allows you to swing from trees and take on obstacles.
