What Is Oakland Zoo Glowfari:

Glowfari features hundreds of larger-than-life glowing animal lanterns throughout the Zoo, and with all-new animals displays for 2021!  Take a mile-long illuminated stroll through the Zoo and visit the desert with camels and bighorn sheep, have an African safari adventure with elephants, giraffes, and an 8-foot crocodile head, walk through the rainforest to meet red and giant pandas – and of course, ride the gondola to the land of bugs featuring a 65-foot Queen Ant Tunnel!
