The first natural-style zoo in North America, Denver Zoo is home to 3,800 animals of more than 650 species. Look for features like bear mountain and the largest gorilla enclosure in the world (where you might find gorillas are napping in their hammocks). In the zoo's open aviaries, walk among exotic birds and even some two-toed sloths. To really get up close to the animals, head to the giraffe enclosure, where you can feed these gentle giants some lettuce. Check the daily schedule for wildlife presentations. Put Denver Zoo on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Denver travel planner.

Denver Zoo reviews
I am a zoo member - so when I want to take a day off -- I love taking my camera & enjoying a few hours (& a nice walk) around the Zoo --- every time I go, things are different. I do miss Polar bears.... more »
No polar bears, no wolves, just one lion and numerous other closed cages. New sting ray exhibit charged. We will not be going back. more »
spent the whole day but still didn't see everything! so much to see and do. glad it is only an hour from where i live. everyone was so nice and had a lot of cool info for my kids and i. already excited to go back! the only reason got 4 stars instead of 5 is that a regular soft serve ice cream cone was $4... SERIOUSLY!? 5 in our group... it would have been $20. not everyone at the zoo is rich. we saved the money and went to McDonald's afterwards. got burgers AND ice cream for that $$$. my only complaint. what a fun day!
I go here about every other Friday with my daughter and it is great! With so many animals it surprises me how clean everything is. The people who work here are very friendly and the exhibits are beautiful. This place is wonderful and if you have not been yet i would highly recommending giving it a shot.
