The Wildlife Habitat at the Flamingo
Type of Activity
Daily Daily from dawn to dusk
Pelican Feedings 8:30 AM and 2 PM daily
Touted as one of the most unique and beloved attractions in Las Vegas, Flamingo's Wildlife Habitat is a serene paradise. It is conveniently free of charge and open to the public daily. Nestled on the Flamingo hotel's lush 15-acre grounds, the habitat is filled with exotic birds, fish and turtles.
A highlight is the Flamingo Island, home to a beautiful flock of Chilean flamingos. A colorful collection of other feathered friends such as Ring Tealed ducks and Sacred Ibis fascinate guests and populate the habitat. In addition to our namesake, you'll find swans, ducks, koi fish and turtles living at the Habitat. Two brown pelicans joined the habitat from a pelican rescue in 2012.
All animals are carefully maintained. The species frolic on islands and streams surrounded by sparkling waterfalls and foliage. Spot hummingbirds zipping to their feeders, snap a few pictures of signature flamingos and watch the water animals at feeding time. The habitat is an idyllic stop among the buzzing city boulevard and The LINQ just a few steps away.

"Just next to the Flamingo's pool area, a flamboyance of live Chilean flamingos, swans, ducks, koi, goldfish, and turtles live on islands and in streams surrounded by sparkling waterfalls and lush foliage."
"When a little birdie tells you that there is group of exotic birds in the heart of the Las Vegas Strip, you're not hearing a fib. At the Flamingo's outdoor Wildlife Habitat, you can get up close and personal with pink flamingos, exotic ducks, koi fish and so much more. The Wildlife Habitat may only be a few steps from the hustle-and-bustle of the resort, but you'll feel miles away."
