We visited after tropical storm Michael knocked out power, but almost everything was running. Go in the morning when animals are active. Recent additions of pgymy hippos, lion cubs and baby animals add to the list of good times that starts with feeding the giraffes.

I seriously love this place. I really wish they were open on Sunday's. Our two favorite attractions are the giraffes and feeding the birds.

Great outing for kids of all ages. Well marked and self guided. Plenty of opportunities to see exotics unclose and personal. Giraffes (can touch and feed), bears, tigers, lions, monkeys, meerkats (really cute) and many many more. Sky lift and tram rides available for different views and perspectives

The zoo is pretty cool full of baby animals which shows the animals here are happy! The cable cars were awesome as was the train ride which goes through an area where the animals are free roaming!!! They also have a ropes course with zip lining through the zoo which we did not do this time. It was well worth the money . You get to feed the animals which is also awesome. I would go again
