Take an Adventure Through Our Wildlife Zoo

Visit Bayou Wildlife Zoo in Alvin, Texas, to explore our wildlife zoo with an experienced guide from the comfort of a tram. We take you through 80 acres where our knowledgeable guides will tell you about animals from all around the world. Bayou Wildlife Zoo offers three areas of attractions: 80-acre tram ride, Addie Lou’s Barnyard and our big red barn.

Tram Rides

Our guided tour on a safari tram allows you to see everything our zoo has to offer without trekking through the vast premises on foot.  Each ride lasts approximately 30 to 40 minutes, and you will see many types of deer, antelopes, buffalos, camels, zebras and other exotic animals. During the tram ride, you feed the animals for an up-close encounter!
