Welcome to the Navajo Nation Zoo!

The Navajo Nation Zoo is the only Native American owned-and-operated Zoo in the U.S., and is deemedA Sanctuary for Nature and the Spirit.”  We offer a home for injured or orphaned wildlife, a quiet place for visitors to reflect, and a unique opportunity to connect with native Southwest animals that are culturally-important to the Navajo People.

Meet Our Animals

The Navajo Zoo has over 100 animals representing just over 50 species. All of these animals are on permanent display for our visitors’ enjoyment.

Learn About the Zoo

The Navajo Nation Zoo and Botanical Park is the only Native American owned-and-operated Zoo in the Country. We are located in the capital city of the Navajo Nation, Window Rock, Arizona within a Tribally-designated park. We receive over 50,000 visitors each year.


The NAVAJO NATION opened its GOLDEN EAGLE SANCTUARY AND EDUCATION CENTER on July 1, 2016.  This Sanctuary is located within the Navajo Zoo and is open to the public for viewing these majestic birds-of-prey.
