Had a great experience today at the zoo. Admission rates are perfect and food and drink pricing is not sky high. Plenty of animals to see during your visit to the zoo.

The North Carolina Zoological Park was built with access for all, including wheelchairs and strollers. The park is laid out with various regions - North America and Africa - where visitors can wander at their own pace to see animals in natural habitats. Even in the midst of summer, the zoo is set up with various indoor displays where the... More

This is a really good zoo. Lots of animals both indigenous and foreign. Staff is good, grounds well kept, and the only things I can gripe about are attempts at up charging for the insect side activities plus the overpriced bland food. However the latter of the two are automatically to be expected. I am only complaining for the sake... More

My family stopped at the zoo on the way back from our beach vacation last year and bought the membership. This year, it was like we visited for free. Big, beautiful, and clean zoo. There is a lot of walking, but there are trams or buses available too. Definitely worth the trip there again and again.

North Carolina has a wonderful zoo. You can go every year and see something new. It is a great learning experience for the young and old.

The NC Zoo is a fun day for the whole family. The NC Zoo is educational, beautiful, entertaining, and captivating to kids of all ages. The park-like setting is great and allows a peaceful walk between different exhibits. Behind the scene tours are truly great and well worth the added cost, allowing a much closer look at animals, animal feeding... More

Love the zoo. I have been on several different occasions. Due to the heat there were two animal exhibits where the animals weren't out but that is to be expected. Otherwise great time as usual.

I have to admit that I was not keen on taking my friend to the zoo on a hot July day. But this is what she wanted to do her on birthday, so we did. I cannot say how wonderful the ENTIRE zoo staff was! From securing a wheelchair for us to ensuring that we had the shortest walk (although... More

I was expecting to see a more open space for the animals to roam with the zoo being on a conservation. They animals just seemed restricted in their small exhibits.
