  • I was hoping to enjoy my visit to this zoo, but honestly it's depressing. The animals are in tiny, dirty enclosures. They appear emaciated, drugged and sickly. It was a sad visit, and I left feeling.....  more »
  • We had a blast! Staff was really friendly. Had a nice chat with the giraffe zookeeper. Our kids could listen to owl sounds and guess which owl it was. The Zoo was beautiful enlightened with thousands....  more »

  • I was so impressed with the changes that Zoo Boise made! It seems so much more open, the animals seem like they are more relaxed and have more room. The new additions are wonderful. We went on discount Thursday and had a blast. So glad we have somewhere to take the kids that can teach the kids while having fun. Good job, Zoo Boise!
  • Our experience at the Boise zoo was outstanding!! My 3 boys are very energetic and in a constant state of motion, they need something fun that can keep up with their busy little lifestyles. The zoo had so much to offer that even as my little ones ran around as much as they could there was always something to captivate their attention or even help them pause and reflect. There are learning experiences and hands on exhibits for busy little fingers. And new and exciting opportunities galore😁 There is even a sweet little carousel with all kinds of animals to ride on. My children got to pet and feed a llama, goats and sheep for the first time. The animals were very gentle and mild tempered. Although the weather was a bit wet it didn't bother us in the slightest. There were both indoor and outdoor things to do. We got our faces painted and had a popcorn snack. We saw giraffes, bats and even a big lion very closely. There were a lot of up and coming exhibits so we can't wait to go again and meet the new animals and experience the fun all over again. I do hope you go on a fantastic zoo adventure for yourself 😊
