Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium is a 215-acre zoo and aquarium in Litchfield Park, Arizona, near Phoenix.

The zoo specializes in African and South American animals, and has Arizona's largest collection of exotic animals.

It has a 0.6 miles "safari train", a boat ride through the Australian habitat, a tram through another segment of the African habitat, and several amusement-oriented rides.

It also has an aquarium with a total tank volume of about 180,000 US gallons.

Its' latest section, "Adventureland", opened in February, 2016. This added 15 acres to the zoo, four rides, and a restaurant.

In addition, a new Mexican restaurant, "Zooberto's", was opened.

Wildlife World Zoo was started as a breeding farm for birds by Mickey Ollson, a teacher, on 5 acres of land, in Glendale, Arizona. In 1973 Ollson purchased the 25 acres at the current site in Litchfield Park.

His zoo grew by breeding and trading animals with other zoos, until by 1984 he "essentially had a zoo no one could visit." The zoo opened to the public that year, and continued to grow by purchasing the surrounding property.

The aquarium opened in 2009, and the Safari Park and "American Adventure" opened in 2014.
