  • We had to change our tickets in the middle of the trip and thankfully that process was very easy. I dont know if we just happened to be too early or if they just dont have the animals out on exhibit.....  more »
  • Many exhibits, like the River Otters, had very little water. One exhibit had a plastic tub for their water. The African Cafe has a menu you have to bring up on your phone and no inside seating...  more »
  • There was construction which made navigating a little harder. I however was very impressed by the zoo. Some animals were not out because it was very hot, that is not anybody’s fault. I live close to one of the top rated zoos in the country and visit zoos wherever I go.
  • An amazing experience. It was about $13/person. Travelling with a student who is studying to be a zoo keeper made it all the more interesting for our party. All the staff members were extremely helpful and answered all of our bottomless questions. The only thing we wished is that the exhibits had the names and some more information on each animal and how they are rescued by the zoo.
