Let me clarify, it was by the Lorikeet aviary, which was really awesome. A few times a day visitors are allowed into the massive Lorikeet aviary, and given tiny cups of juice. You hold your arms out to your sides with the little juice cups in hand, and watch as the birds land on you and drink away. Lorikeet's are... More

I am a zoo fanatic and have visited dozens of zoos and recently published a book on zoos. Online reviews of this place seem to be towards the extreme - people either think it is the best zoo they have seen (which is absurd) or a complete dump with suffering animals that ought to be shut down (also absurd). The... More

My husband and I stopped here while on a weekend trip to Phoenix for Labor Day. We thought it would be fun and we found discount ticket on TravelZoo so we decided to try it. We immediately noticed the water log ride closed, not sure why. The little train ride was closed. Some exhibits are closed due to construction and... More

Well I was balking at paying almost 70 dollars for 2 tickets but I know that they need the money to keep this zoo a well oiled machine. And that is pretty much my only complaint I had at any point and time. Had a great time walking around and seeing all the different animals they had to offer. For... More

This started out as a little, not very well kept up zoo many years ago. It has turned into an amazing zoo with lots of things to do, animals well taken care of. Fun!!!

I visited this zoo numerous times while I was living in Arizona (Phoenix Metro). It's a wonderful rehabilitation zoo. The animals are up close and personal (chain link fence between you and a black panther/tiger). My favorite thing at the zoo is being able to feed giraffes by hand by standing on a tall bridge platform. They are the most... More

The elephant was giving birth so we didn't get to see them. It was really, really hot. It was really expensive and they only take cash!! The kangaroo walk through was awesome.

This is a very large zoo, and one of the things that means is that if you want to see the whole thing, you will do a LOT of walking. It is so large, they even have a short "ski lift". They have a lot of really good animals, and most of them are displayed very nicely. I like the... More

The first time I visited my family here in Arizona, they took me to this zoo. I love it here! Since that first trip, I have moved to Arizona, and it is now a tradition to visit Wildlife World every year around Christmas. They have recently made some changes, and renovations. I can't wait to go this year to explore... More

We were very surprised at how well the habitats were maintained. If you want an up close view of the animals, this is the place to visit. They had several otters (my favorite) that had just given birth! Soooo cute... You cannot go wrong by visiting this zoo.
