Rolling Hills Wildlife Adventure Zoo (formerly Rolling Hills Refuge) west of Salina, Kansas is one of Kansas' newer zoos. This high quality, medium sized zoo is on 60 acres, adjacent to the Rolling Hills Ranch and the Museum (additional fee). The animals are in beautiful condition. The flamingos are even pink!

The newest attraction at the zoo is Pride of the Prairie habitat, which opened in 2022 and is the first zoo exhibit you encounter when leaving the entrance/museum building and walking toward the zoo. This lion enclosure doubles the space devoted to the sister lionesses, Zalika and Kamali. Lions like being up high and both lions were perched at the front of their exhibit in the shade from the pillars in front of the visitor cave's viewing area.

The space also has new indoor habitat and additional off exhibit housing which will be important in coming years as a male lion is brought to the zoo and there will be an opportunity for breeding and let Zalika and Kamali's genes be passed on new a new generation. 

Try to visit the Rolling Hills Zoo on a sunny Spring or Fall day when most of the animals (particularly the big cats) are active. There are more than 80 species, including apes, rhinos, lions and white tigers. Zoo visitors are encouraged to stop the zoo keepers and ask questions.

The zoo is off I-70, 6 miles west of I-135 and 2 miles south of Exit 244 on a paved road. Rolling Hills is open 9 AM to 5 PM daily (8 AM - 5 PM in summer). Closed Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year's Day
